Mary Selvidge, Porter Hall TN, Steve Howell & the Lonesome Teardrops

When: Fri., June 17, 10 p.m. 2011

In spite of the geographical nomenclature, Porter Hall, TN actually come from Nashville. From that, you might assume, they make country music; though correct, that genre name's a bit too limiting for the versatility of Porter Hall. Sure, the quartet plays with the occasional electric edge of today's modern, radio-ready outfits, but they generally cling to an acoustic guitar, with bass, drums and mandolin supporting songs that speak of crazy country folk and salt-of-the-Earth saviors. Indeed, Porter Hall mixes biblical salvation and secular badasses, like a shot followed by an exclamation of "amen." With Mary Selvidge and Steve Howell and the Lonesome Teardrops. —Grayson Currin
