10/17/17 CHARLES BRADLEY: SOUL of AMERICA (Documentary) Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 7:30pm. Admission: Free. Age restrictions: No Minors. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400.

Join us Tuesday evening ( October 17th ) as we screen the very inspiring documentary, Charles Bradley: Soul of America. This moving film charts the extraordinary late-in-life rise of 62-year-old aspiring soul singer Charles Bradley, whose debut album rocketed him from a hard life in the projects to worldwide acclaim. 7:30 sharp. No cover charge.

” On the surface, a 62-year-old former James Brown impersonator usually would be relegated to hipster record-collector novelty status. But Charles Bradley, the charismatic, soulful male counterpart to Sharon Jones, channeled six decades of unimaginable hardship – illiteracy, homelessness, the murder of his brother – to release his uncomfortably cathartic debut album in 2011 to worldwide acclaim. Charles Bradley: Soul of America details the singer’s life with candor, showcasing a singer with the pride of being Brown’s heir apparent and the humility to pass out flyers to random people for his own show. As Bradley sews his own show clothes and takes care of his elderly, infirmed mother, the singer displays such a gentle, affable demeanor, it’s impossible not to root for his success. ” – Rolling Stone

Cary Hudson is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from the great state of Mississippi who resides somewhere between Memphis and New Orleans. He is a former drugstore clerk, landscaper, farm hand, waiter, house painter, pizza deliverer, and fry cook who currently spends his time canoeing the creeks of south MS, riding his bike to the snowcone stand, and going for leisurely walks with his dogs. Cary’s music career began with a bang when his band placed third at the Sumrall High School Talent Show in 1980. In the late 80’s he moved to Oxford and started The Hilltops with John Stirratt (currently bassist with Wilco), and shortly thereafter John’s twin sister Laurie joined the band. After five years of touring, recording, and liver damage, The Hilltops called it a day and Cary and Laurie moved to Los Angeles in 1990.

New Orleans-based singer/songwriter Lynn Drury rocks her audiences with her catchy grooves, sing-along anthems and soulful lyrics. Although she has been compared to Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, and Van Morrison by AllMusic.com, http://www.allmusic.com/artist/lynn-drury-mn0001970521 Lynn epitomizes the hard-to-describe but easily recognized sound of NOLAmericana tm – “music rooted in the groove of the Crescent City”.

No one ever said country music had to be simple, and when Austin Lucas began thinking about the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2013 album Stay Reckless he had a lot on his mind. The Indiana troubadour wanted to do something not only different from his own work, but unlike anything else being done in the realm of country music and Americana. Between The Moon And The Midwest marries traditional & cosmic country sounds with sharp, vivid storytelling in a fully realized album concept.

The songs began to emerge during the 2011 Stay Reckless sessions and tour cycle; a tumultuous time masked by non-stop life on the road. With his marriage dissolving, Lucas began pouring his pain into fictionalized characters. Stay Reckless captured the experience of his divorce, and Lucas put those first few songs on the backburner while he toured heavily behind the album and avoided reflecting on the state of his personal life.

and imagination and spans a number of genres, including folk, blues, and rock. Raised in Buffalo, NY, Case came to the Bay area in 1973 and worked as a street musician and played in the seminal power pop group The Nerves, before moving to Los Angeles to form the Plimsouls, landing a deal with Geffen Records.

The Plimsouls achieved success with the single, “A Million Miles Away,” but broke up shortly after. Case’s 1986 solo Geffen record revealed deep roots in folk and blues, and earned him his first Grammy nomination for the song “Old Blue Car” as well as the Number 1 spot on the NY Time’s 1986 Best CDs list. Six CDs later, Case earned another nomination for Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John, a remarkable collection of songs that features Case’s voice and a single guitar. It’s clear that Case is a major talent on the Americana troubadour landscape.

Case’s 2010 CD, Wig emphasized the rock and blues side of Case’s repertoire, while 2007’s Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John demonstrates what Case can do with just his voice and a guitar. With or without a backing band, Case delivers his songs with both intense passion and introspective nuance.

After spending seven years with her band Sarah & The Tall Boys, Sarah Potenza relocated to Nashville, Tennessee with not much more than her husband and her monster vocals. That coupled with her honest reflective songwriting she quickly garnered the attention of the city’s thriving music scene and she became a staple at the world renowned Bluebird Café and the globally broadcast Music City Roots program.

One of her performances on Music City Roots resulted in a phone call from the NBC television show, The Voice. Potenza took the challenge in stride and managed to land a four chair turn and out of 50,000 contestants, she made it to the top twenty!

Her passion for performing and undeniable voice resonated with America and made her a fan favorite across the country. Nashville welcomed her home with pride and celebrated her authentic, heart-felt songwriting with a sold out show at the Bluebird Cafe and her debut on the Grand Ole Opry.

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice that the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull”, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding.

Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer.” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette) with the release Blind Water Finds Blind Water, a record of his most arresting and beautiful songs to date.
