A night of blues with Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite. 9/10/18 at The Mill and Mine.

Get tickets here for Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite

Monday Sept. 10, 2018

The following group of info was taken from Rolling Stone magazine.

Ben Harper and harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite unveiled a smoldering new song, “No Mercy In This Land,” the title-track from their new album.


Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite Eager to Record New Album

“I’d go into the studio tonight,” Harper tells RS, fresh off Grammy win

The sparse and lonesome blues tune pairs Harper’s steely guitar with the raspy blare of Musselwhite’s harmonica. The pair share vocal duties as well. Their voices and instruments mesh woefully above a steady march of percussion. “The righteous and the wretched, the holy and the damned,” Harper sings, “There’s no mercy in this land.”

No Mercy In This Land is available now. A digital deluxe edition of the record will feature three bonus tracks recorded live at the Machine Shop. Per a statement, the record features “both Ben and Charlie’s personal stories and adds to the sonic history of American struggle and survival.” No Mercy In This Land follows Harper and Musselwhite’s acclaimed 2013 collaboration, Get Up!, which won the Grammy for Best Blues Album.

“Charlie Musselwhite is that very rare and hallowed place where blues past, present and future collide,” Harper said of the harmonica player. “He transforms notes into emotions that feel both hauntingly familiar and brand new, as if hearing them for the first time every time. He is a living legend whose harmonica playing should be beamed into outer space to search for other life forms.”

In turn, Musselwhite said of working with Harper, “Onstage or in the studio – working with Ben Harper holds the same excitement I experienced working with Chicago blues legends back in the day. I think it is safe to […]

Iceland-bred band, Kaleo will grace the Tennessee Theatre Sept. 24th, 2018

Monday, September 24th – 8pm
Tennessee Theatre
Tickets available at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Tennessee Theatre box office, and 800-745-3000.

More Info


Kaleo results from coming of age in Iceland has paired with the fresh inspiration of moving to America, and the band has built a sound to match the disparate landscapes. A gorgeous and raucous blend of rock, folk and blues, Kaleo’s debut LP embodies that very spirit of duality: titled A/B, the album showcases the band’s multi-layered dynamics and ability to play different genres with equal skill. Best friends since attending elementary school outside of Reykjavik, bandleader JJ Julius Son, drummer David Antonsson, and bassist Daniel Kristjansson began playing together at the age of 17 before adding guitarist Rubin Pollock to the mix in 2012. They named the band Kaleo, which means “the sound” in Hawaiian, and started their career in with a handful of well-received shows at the 2012 Iceland Airwaves music festival. The band signed to Elektra/Atlantic and moved to the States in early 2015, choosing Austin as their new base. “It has obviously been a big change coming from a small country of 300 thousand people in Iceland to the USA with over 300 million people,” says JJ Julius Son. “We’ve learned a lot, and we are more experienced now than when we first came. Overall it’s been a great adventure.” The past year has been a busy one for the band, as they’ve played nearly nonstop—including over 45 US states—as well as notching a spot on the soundtrack to HBO’s hit show Vinyl and recording a full-length album with the producer Jacquire King in Nashville. The concept behind A/B comes from Julius Son’s love of the split sides of vinyl records […]

George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. The Mill and Mine on August 9th. George is retiring soon, so catch him on his final tour.



Video We Want The Funk!  —

George Edward Clinton (born July 22, 1941) is an American singer, songwriter, bandleader, and record producer. His Parliament-Funkadelic collective (which primarily recorded under the distinct band names Parliamentand Funkadelic) developed an influential and eclectic form of funk music during the 1970s that drew on science-fiction, outlandish fashion, psychedelic culture, and surreal humor. He launched a solo career in 1981, and would go on to influence 1990s hip-hop and G-funk. He is regarded, along with James Brown and Sly Stone, as one of the foremost innovators of funk music. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, alongside 15 other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.
