The new downtown York concert series Kable House Presents announced yesterday its debut lineup of shows, all to take place in York’s Central Market house beginning in September.
First up is Nashville-based singer-songwriter Rayland Baxter on September 11. Following national tours in support of everyone from The Civil Wars and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals to Bobby Long and Langhorne Slim – not to mention a much-talked-about debut at last year’s Newport Folk Festival – Baxter makes his Central PA debut before hitting the road with The Head & The Heart. (Fun fact: Baxter’s dad is Nashville-based session musician extraordinaire Bucky Baxter, a frequent pedal steel player for the likes of Bob Dylan, Steve Earle and Ryan Adams.)
On September 17, Goshen, IN-via-Philadelphia songwriter Timothy Showalter, aka Strand of Oaks, brings the sounds of his acclaimed new release, HEAL. If you’re unfamiliar with Strand of Oaks, we’re confident in saying you won’t be for long; Showalter’s latest release has garnered immediate praise from NPR, Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound, among others. The term “break-up record” can sound cliche, but HEAL does great work in bringing the description back to earth.
Blues-rocker Patrick Sweany rounds out the list with a show on October 2. While Sweany’s single “Them Shoes” has made its rounds on the Pandora circuit, his recent live shows at The Fridge and Tellus360 in Lancaster have proven he’s more than just a one-hit wonder. Consider this – before Dan Auerbach went on to form a little band called The Black Keys, the fuzz-rock luminary was a guitarist in Patrick Sweany’s band. How’s that for street cred?
