Monday Sep 22nd @ 9pm A. Lorenzo Farr - the Backslider
A. Lorenzo Farr - the Backslider Blues::Soul::Rock

A. Lorenzo Farr (The Backslider) is one half of the newly formed group "The Backsliders" with his youngest brother Jay Farr (who performs in SC). A. Lorenzo Farr has been in and out of music his entire life. He has now figured out of to balance his two loves, music and philosophy/social theory. The result: he is a Professor by day and musician by night. His music is a fusion of blues, soul, rock, and some folk with the conviction of a gospel singer. The Backslider's show is a combination of covers and originals. His music is influenced by a wide range of singers from Marvin Gaye to Sam Cooke, Johnny Cash, Howling Wolf, The Beatles, Otis Redding and others. In his music, The Backslider attempts to capture and give voice to as many aspects of the human condition as possible.

Tuesday Sep 23rd @ 8pm Tom Green
Tom Green Singer/Songwriter::Acoustic
Tom Green is a fan favorite songwriter here at Natasha's. His finely-crafted and insightful songs move across a broad musical spectrum from blues to country to pop. Tom has written themes for KET broadcasts and for state tourism campaigns, and he has been the featured solo artist at the WUKY Grapevine event. He has appeared in musical groups with Nick Stump, Rodney Hatfield, and Lee Carroll.
Tom appears regularly at the Nashville Bluebird Cafe and performs his distinctive material in Lexington with the talented band Oldsmobile. On Sundays Tom is a preacher, but he skips Matthew, Mark, and John so that his message will be more lucrative.

Wednesday Sep 24th @ 9pm Tim Shelton
Tim Shelton "I've always loved and appreciated all kinds of music, and it was almost nagging at me that I wanted to do something else. But NewFound Road was busy in Bluegrass, and we'd finally gotten to the point where we were comfortable, so it seemed a little silly to change. But then [mandolinist] Joe Booher came in and said, 'I think I'm ready for a break from traveling.' Well, he'd been with me for seven years, so it caught me off guard. But I thought about it, and literally the next day, I decided, I'm done. I didn't want to deal with reinventing NewFound Road, I'd been wanting to do other things musically, to go other places, and so I thought, now is the time."

Thursday Sep 25th @ 9pm Jollett Hollow
Jollett Hollow Rock::Pop
Jollett Hollow is the brain child of Jesse Taylor. The music represents his life story from his family's origins in the hills of Virgina. Jesse lead the Alt-Rock group, Gloria Bills, for 7 years on the road and now owns and operates a local vintage/used guitar shop in Lexington, KY. Jollett Hollow has reconnected him to his roots and he has gradually assembled a talented and like-minded group of musicians to realize the potential of the band. John Gill is a superb bass player and expert soundman, lending his talents and experience in a variety of ways. Evan Strippelhoff offers his unique and developing talents on the drums. All members contribute their vocal talents to create vast harmonies.
Jollett Hollow combines the power of a rock band with the folk sense of a singer-songwriter. Their music will just as soon tug at your heart-strings as get you movin and groovin.

Friday Sep 26th @ 9pm Central KY Guitar Night Presents: Neil Jacobs with Chris Weiss
Central KY Guitar Night Presents: Neil Jacobs with Chris Weiss A masterful performer on the 12 string acoustic guitar with his own ingenious style that the St. Louis Riverfront Times describes as "mesmerizing" and the Austin Chronicle describes as "the rockin'est since early Leo Kottke". Neil covers the world vibe with influences of Gypsy, World, Balkan Folk, Classical and Modern Fingerstyle, while transforming his 12-string acoustic guitar into his own personal orchestra. Neil draws inspiration from his mind-boggling world travels and experiences, and shares his fascinating stories with his audience.

"For more than 25 years Jacobs has circumnavigated the globe performing his exotic hybrid of gypsy jazz, flamenco, and Eastern European Folk on solo 12-string guitar" Guitar Player Magazine

"Imagine Russian cowboy music. Imagine flamenco joined with Balkan dances. Imagine one guy doing all that while sounding like a whole orchestra." - The Cleveland Sun Messenger

Chris Weiss is the founder of Guitar Night and a Lexington favorite. Chris is on a mission to ignite the world around him through soul-catching melodies and gut-kicking lyrics. With a sound that's been described as Andy Mckee meets Ben Folds, Chris's live shows break the mold of what people expect to hear from a guy and his acoustic guitar. Chris explains, "Music, at its core, is emotional, and it expresses something that spoken word cannot." His music reaches to the heart of musical expression. It's good nourishment for an expressive hunger, and his is a nutritious plate.
"Chris Weiss is a poet of both strings and words, with exceptional grooves and beautiful melodies." - Mark Kroos (Guitar Player Magazine's "Guitar Superstar")

Sunday Sep 28th @ 8pm Foghorn Stringband
Foghorn Stringband Americana::Bluegrass::Roots
Foghorn Stringband is the shining gold standard for American stringband music, with seven albums, thousands of shows, over a decade of touring under their belts, and two entirely new generations of old-time musicians following their lead. Through all this, they've never let the music grow cold; instead they've been steadily proving that American roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration.
Foghorn Stringband play the old way, the way you'd have heard stringbands play on Southern radio stations back in the 1930s. They don't fancy up the music to make it more modern, instead they reach into the heart of the songs, pulling out the deep emotions that made them so enduring in the first place. Performing live, these multi-instrumentalists gather around a single microphone in the middle of the stage, expertly balancing their sound on the fly, and creating the rarest of music: songs that are at once wildly virtuosic and intimately hand-crafted. Foghorn Stringband play American roots music of the finest order.
Listen to the Foghorn String Band play "Be Kind to a Man While He's Down"
