Ozark Folk Center Evening Concerts – Feature Concert – Jimbo Mathus & Kinfolks
October 27, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12
Two hour concerts by musicians from Mountain View and vicinity. Square dancing as danced in the area for over 100 years is performed at the beginning of the evening and right after intermission.
The late Memphis producer Jim Dickinson once called Jimbo Mathus “the singing voice of Huck Finn.” Outside the South, Mathus is likely known as the ringleader …of the hyper-ragtime outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers. In his native Mississippi and throughout the South, however, Mathus is the prolific songwriter of born-in-the-bone Southern music, the torchbearer for Deep South mythology and culture. Think Delta highways, bowling-pin Budweisers and “innerplanetary honky-tonk” for the masses.
Musicians include: Gordon Parker, Kailee Spickes, Chandler Spickes
