ZANE CAMPBELL:

 

Zane Campbell is the nephew of the legendary old-time-music singer-songwriter Ola Belle Reed, but the nephew took a detour that led him to the New York rock scene where Tommy Ramone produced a still-unreleased album of Zane’s songs. Both the family heritage and the punk detour are reflected in his recent solo album, “Zane Campbell.” It “boasts the trad-country sounds of fiddle, upright bass, pedal steel and the singer's acoustic guitar,” says the Washington Post, “but the big-lunged lead vocals boast a rock'n'roll edginess, more likely to confront than placate the listener.” “It’s a mongrel sound of twisted hillbilly, hardcore honky-tonk and a punk attitude,” adds country historian Eddie Dean. “His debut, a half-century of hard living in the making, is stone classic Americana, with parables of sin and redemption laced with acid wit and the grit of his mountain forebears.”

GEOFFREY HIMES:

 

Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Baltimore City Paper, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, American Songwriter, Smithsonian, Paste and others, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Si Kahn, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Tony Denikos, Ken Kolodner, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. Himes, a singer-pianist, performs in a duo with Love Riot violinist Willem Elsevier. This month Himes will perform with Elsevier and premiere a new song, “I’m Gonna Find It."

AN DIE MUSIK Live:

An Die Musik is Baltimore’s finest listening room. With 84 armchairs, great acoustics, the city’s best piano and a lobby bar, this performance space above the venerable record store is as intimate as it is inviting. The street parking meters are free on Sundays; the venue offers discount coupons for the area’s ethnic restaurants, and the 5 pm start time keeps the afternoon free while allowing a good night's sleep before the work week. Here, at last, is a music experience designed for adults.
