I spent some time talking to David Childers this weekend for an upcoming feature here and he put something in words that’s driving what I want to do here:
If you want to talk about the Americana scene, there’s an interesting story to be told around here. Like, the Rank Outsiders, that was a very interesting thing. They opened up this showcase in the mid 90’s. Doubting Thomas, Lenny Federal, Lou Ford, Michael Reno Harrell, it’s just interesting to me what all these people have done. There are a lot of trails that go off from there.
You follow it, I think you’ll find an interesting story.
It’s not limited to Americana, either. There’s a lot of trails leading me all over Charlotte and I think it’ll be an interesting story.
