Americana Spotlight is a bi-annual showcase featuring bands that Young Heirlooms have met and played with along the road from touring their album, The Hammer. Americana Spotlight is happening at The Woodward Theater on Saturday, August 18th!
The evening kicks off with Robert Lowell (NKY-native) a western troubadour; his songwriting nostalgically covers anything from heartbreak to commentary on today's times.
Taking the stage after Robert is Rebecca Rego & The Trainmen, an Indie-Americana band based in Champaign, IL. "Not often a voice strikes the listener as one that fits the music and lyrics so impeccably, but Rego offers a jazzy scat delivery topped with polished musicianship, making for an inspirational indie anthem." - Glide Magazine 2016
Rego has shared the stage with the next band - Miles Nielsen & The Rusted Hearts, based out of Rockford, IL. Neilson has spent nearly a decade, enthralling audiences with music that draws force from the prime years of Western-influenced rock music and classic ‘60s soul.
Hosts and headliners Young Heirloomspromise to deliver an ever-captivating show sure to keep their reputation of tight, dynamic performances right on target.
The four bands make up a diverse exploration of the Americana genre. This year there will also be an art installation provided by Heather Braunlin-Jones, who has a modern take on quilt-making: a contemporary take on a roots-inspired art form.
Momento Photobooth will also be present so audience members can turn the night's memories into keepsakes.
