The California Country Show Returns To Americanafest

Americanafest is happening this week in Nashville, Tennessee. Yes, in person. There are many panels and seminars scheduled, but what is most important, of course, is the music, and one event in particular looks especially appealing – The California Country Show, which is scheduled for Friday, September 24th, from noon to 6 p.m. The lineup features some excellent artists, including Ted Russell Kamp, Chris Pierce, and Dead Rock West. This show will take place at the Acme Feed & Seed at 101 Broadway in Nashville.

Ted Russell Kamp is scheduled to kick off the show at noon. If you’ve never seen him, I highly recommend checking out his set. And if you aren’t going to make it to Nashville this week, you should listen to some of the albums he’s released, including Solitaire, which was released earlier this year, and Down In The Den, which came out last year. Ted Russell Kamp is also part of the trio Stash (with Joey Peters and Rich McCulley), and they have an album scheduled for a November release.  Dead Rock West follows. You can hear Dead Rock West on Ram On: The 50th Anniversary Tribute To Paul & Linda McCartney’s Ram, which was released in May. On that album, they perform “Eat At Home.” The lineup also includes The Wild West, LadyCouch, The Whitmore Sisters, The Mastersons, Chris Pierce, Garrison Starr, Sam Outlaw, Jonathan Tyler, and Brian Wright & The Sneak Ups. Chris Pierce is an excellent vocalist, and he’s been releasing some important material, including “Mercy,” which he recorded with Sunny War (as War & Pierce), and “Young, Black And Beautiful,” a powerful and moving song. Each artist is given a limited time to perform at this event, but this is a great way to hear several talented artists. The show is going to be hosted by Dave Bernal of The California Country Radio Show.
