As my 70th birthday approaches, I plan to comb through 50 years of music while renewing old friendships at two special events in March. Expect some old favorites mixed in with a few brand-new selections in the intimate setting of Nashville’s world-famous Station Inn.
On Tuesday March 12th, New Orleans’ King of Frenchman Street, the one and only Washboard Chaz and drummer Larry Atamanuik, who’s played with everyone from Ronnie Hawkins to Emmy Lou Harris, join regular bandmates Mike Bub (bass), Shad Cobb (fiddle) and Jan Fabricius (mandolin and vocals) for some Americana fun. My favorite songwriter / club owner, Ed Snodderly, who’s newest release “Chimney Smoke” show’s he just keeps getting better, will open the show.
Wednesday March 13th starts with Irish piper Eamon Dillon and cellist Nathaniel Smith joining Shad Cobb, Jan Fabricius and me playing some pre-Paddy’s day jigs, reels and ballads. The second set brings back the reliable Bluegrass lineup of Mike Bub on bass, and Cory Walker on banjo, along with Shad Cobb (fiddle), Jan Fabricius (mandolin and vocals) and myself – plus a special mystery guest.
Doors are at 7pm and Showtime is 8pm both nights. Admission is $30 per person. The Station Inn is a great small venue and this show will sell out, so in order to reserve your entry pass pre-pay via Venmo @ www.venmo.com/tim-obrien-89169 Please, indicate in the comments which night or nights that you would like to attend and first and last name of attendees.
Jan will send confirmation of your payment for you to print or show from your phone at the door. It is general admission so there are no reserved seats. Advanced payments will be accepted through March 11th. You can purchase admission at the door until capacity has been reached each night.
If you buy advance tickets you will receive a commemorative poster! 1 per person or 1 per couple. Thanks.
