Wednesday November 25, 2015 at 8 pm, $10. North of Nashville: 3 Alt-Country songwriters in the round: Danny Medakovic, Nudie, and Chris Altmann. A night of great musical discovery and storytelling.
Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer, Danny Medakovic has been gathering the respect of fellow musicians and music fans since moving to Hamilton 20 years ago. Danny will play tunes from his newest album, Jolley Cut. http://www.jolleycut.com/
Roots troubadour Nudie is touring through Ontario in November from his current home base of Charlottetown, PEI. His authentic style of music and songwriting is captured on his 2014 album Remember This. It is the soundtrack of relationships and heartache, delivered with wit and charm, and coated in the sounds of 1960s West Coast country soul. http://nudiemusic.com/
Pedal steel player and songwriter Chris Altmann was born in Adelaide, Australia and has been living in Hamilton for three years, where he is an in-demand session player and touring musician. He is currently working on his third solo album. http://chrisaltmann.com.au/
“An intriguing, slightly eclectic variety of musical styles on themes of whimsy, sagacity, and relationships… all held together by Medakovic’s warm, slightly twangy baritone and solid guitar playing.” – Greater Hamilton Musician
“A relaxed vocal style that grabs your attention with understated confidence… Nudie writes in the many shades of anguish that anticipate and result from broken hearts” – No Depression
Altmann seems a musical Merlin, drawing together like-minded players on this debut album simulating, in atmosphere, something akin to Cocker/Russell’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen.” – Maverick Magazine (UK)
