Shelby Eicher’s Hillbilly Jazz
June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
“Hillbilly Jazz” is a fun show drawing on the movement in country music that was influenced by Bob Wills. Wills brought swing and boogie-woogie rhythms, along with electric instruments and drums, to a genre that was largely acoustic. Many artists in the 1950s produced this fresh sound. “Hillbilly Jazz” will have an all star line-up — Shelby Eicher, Tommy Crook, Steve Bagsby, Jared Johnson and Nathan Eicher — and will tap into this great sound with tunes by Merle Travis, Ernest Tubb and others.
