River City Sessions is a monthly show performed by artists on the second Thursday of every month. This month it will be held on October 12th at 7:30PM.
RCS's lineup this month features Jubal and Spinster.
Jubal is the americana-folk coalescence of Taylor Kress & Bonnie Simmons based in Knoxville, Tennessee. With two voices and a guitar, Jubal works with simplicity to create an intricate and emotional sound.
Taylor and Bonnie both grew up in the Knoxville area and experimented with musical flavors throughout their youth. Bonnie, with a deep-seeded exposure to old-time, gospel, blues, and traditional folk of the region, and Taylor with an innate love for history, lyricism, and alternative sounds. Jubal showcases their contrasting influences and backgrounds with strong harmonies and varying writing styles. Their voices joined for the first time on 89.9 WDVX's Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, Tennessee, and their musical chemistry was obvious right from the start.
Spinster - After unearthing their Amish grandfather’s accordion four years ago, sisters Rosalie, Rachel, and Amelia formed the acoustic art pop trio, Spinster. Spinster weaves familial harmony with a hodgepodge of instruments from the mandolin and washboard to the upright bass and glockenspiel. Drawing upon the likes of the The Bangles, The Ronettes, and The Andrews Sisters, Spinster revives and mashes up old and new classics and throwback originals. The sisters have recently converged in Chattanooga, TN to write and record their first album.
** Adelle's Creperie & Bar will be open during tonight's performance.**
This month's event will be guest-hosted by Mike Crowder standing in for Michael Gray
Admission $5.00. Doors open at 7:00pm. Show starts at 7:30pm.
