Kevn Kinney & Bobby Bare Jr

October 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Kevn Kinney
is the lead singer / songwriter of the Atlanta rock band, Drivin N Cryin, who recently celebrated the release of their 9th studio album, ‘Live the Love Beautiful’, on Drivin N Cryin Records. Since the band’s 1985 inception, he’s released some spare acoustic records on his own, often collaborating with R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck.

MacDougal Blues, released on Island Records in 1990, announced the rocker’s arrival on the folk scene, with the engaging title cut and nine more acoustic tracks, produced by Buck, and mostly played by his bandmates from Drivin N Cryin.

Though often cited as a working-class lyricist, Kinney cannot easily be thrown into the same bag as Springsteen, Mellencamp, or Dave Alvin. Instead, his is a unique spin on class, not urban yet not completely rural.

Kinney still continues to tour as a solo artist in-between dates with Drivin N Cryin, and is known to help host the annual Christmas Jam in Asheville with Warren Haynes. Darius Rucker cut Kinney’s song, Straight To Hell, on his album When Was The Last Time. The Drivin N Cryin song was a major hit on their album, Mystery Road, originally released in 1989.

Bobby Bare Jr
Yes – he is the son of Bobby Bare, but his own body of work is impressive.  In 1974 – Bobby Jr and his daddy were both nominated for a Grammy for the song “Daddy What If”, written by Shel Silverstein.  At 30 – he led the roots-rock outfit Bare Jr and released several critically acclaimed albums.

His next band was the Young Criminals Starvation League – which included members from And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead and My Morning Jacket.  He’s had a number of solo albums, and over the last several years he has performed, recorded and toured with Guide by Voices.

This show will be special.
