Patty Griffin, Grant Peeples & More

Acclaimed Americana artist Patty Griffin is on a rare tour playing clubs. The Grammy Award winner is at Waiting Room Sunday, Jan. 26, 8 p.m., $15 cover. The Austin-based Griffin won the Grammy for 2010’s Downtown Church and spent time as a member of Robert Plant’s Band of Joy, leading to a real-life romantic partnership with Plant. Her tour is in support of the dual release of her new CD American Kid (New West) and the long-awaited release of her 2000 recording Silver Bell. The 2000 LP was shelved after A&M records changed hands, but has remained on Americana fans’ radar, recorded by  Daniel Lanois' at Kingsway Studio in New Orleans. See pattygriffin.com and waitingroomlounge.com.

Get on Peeples’ Bus
One of the most notable artists I’ve been introduced to in the last few years is Grant Peeples. The singer-songwriter-guitarist is based out of Sopchoppy, Fla., and is a fine writer in the best Southern literary and folk traditions. He has a Kickstarter going to get the final production done and promotion out for his upcoming record, Punishing the Myth. It’s his fifth recording and his third disc with the iconic Gurf Morlix as producer, which should tell you something about Peeples’ talents and street cred in the singer-songwriter community. See grantpeeples.com for more about Peeples’ work and for the link to the Kickstarter project, which ends Jan. 28. At this writing, Peeples is two-thirds of the way to his goal. All supporters get their name painted on Peeples’ road-dog VW Bus. 

Zoo Bar
Charlie Burton is back at Lincoln’s Zoo Bar Thursday, Jan. 23, 6-9 p.m. The eclectic world music of Paa Kow's By All Means Band from Denver plays after 9 p.m. along with Midland Band.
