Sadly, Jim had an accident that did some damage to his hand so he won’t be able to play this week.  We’re working on rescheduling for another date this spring and will contact everyone once that’s been confirmed.

 

This concert brings together two songwriters, singers and instrumentalists for a unique pairing; Abbie Gardner, the fiery Dobro player from Americana darlings Red Molly and Jim Henry, the A-list multi-instrumentalist for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Eliza Gilkyson and Paula Cole.

Both artists have toured nationally and internationally, playing such festivals as Merlefest and Kerrville Folk Festival, as well as countless concert series throughout the states. With Red Molly on hiatus, Abbie began doing solo shows and asked Jim if he would split a show with her, as he rarely performs his own material (despite releasing 6 recordings on the Signature Sounds label under his own name). They had done some collaboration with a show featuring slide guitar called “The Slide Sessions” and hit it off. Jim and Abbie ended up spending the whole show on stage together, swapping songs and backing each other up. It was a fun and magical night. Word got out about the collaboration and they’ve had inquiries about booking more shows. Both busy in their separate careers, it’s hard to find chances to play together. But they are starting to find more and more opportunities. Find Abbie on Twitter and Facebook
