Because of the recent Broadway success of Pippin, the show’s producers have decided to take the show on tour, including a stop in Nashville.

Darren Self Tue, 22 Apr 2014 14:30:00 GMT Taylor Pie / Ruby Lovett Taylor Pie is a native East Texan,.At a Del Mar College hootenanny hooked up with Don Williams and Lofton Kline and the three quickly found their sound and name- The Pozo Seco Singers. The trio recorded a song called "Time," which became a national hit The group shared the stage with folk icons Gordon Lightfoot, Ian & Sylvia, Odetta,Smothers Brothers and John Denver. After the Pozos, Taylor moved to NYC in 1972 playing clubs like the Bottom Line,, where Bette Midler came in one night to hear her song "Back in the Bars Again," and ended up using it in her "Clams on the Half Shell" review. In the early 80’s, Taylor headed to the Berkshires where Susan Taylor became Taylor  Pie...looking for a handle that didn't feel like, "Jane Doe"as she remembers. Pie has had songs recorded by Tanya Tucker, Mickey Gilley,, The Forester Sisters, John Conlee, Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike, and Terri Hendrix.  Ruby Lovett is pure country. She is heir to a tradition of women with drawls and spunk, women who, truth be told, built and nurtured country music from its beginnings through early Reba. Ruby released a critically well-received album on Curb Records produced by Garth Brooks producer Allen Reynolds and anchored by "Look What Love Can Do," a self-penned song based on her experience as an adopted child. Gartj Brooks has said ."For the people that say 'country' is what's missing from today's country music," Brooks has said, "find Ruby Lovett.""The music I make is real country music," she says. "It's pure and unpolished. It's the country music that I love, and I believe there's an appetite for it."

Lydia Loveless Two years after the critical success of her breakout second album, Indestructible Machine, Lydia Loveless emerges from the trenches of hometown Columbus, OH with the gloves off and brimming with confidence on Somewhere Else. While her previous album was described as “hillbilly punk with a honky-tonk heart” (Uncut), this one can’t be so quickly shoehorned into neat categorical cubbyholes. No, things are different this time around—Loveless and her band have collectively dismissed the genre blinders and sonic boundaries that come from playing it from a safe,familiar place.  Performing as headliner for Nightfall on Friday, June 13th, 2014 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. NightFall Music Series, River City Stage at Miller Plaza,  850 Market St.,
