By now you’ve probably heard the news that the newly remodeled Ludlow Garage is up and running. The sound is great, it’s an intimate space with lots of history, and the concert schedule is packed for many months to come. As you’re scrolling through the Ludlow Garage’s list of upcoming shows, don’t overlook Rising Appalachia, who will perform there on November 12. If you have a soft spot for roots music, acoustic instruments, rich harmonies, and positive vibrations, check out these videos by Rising Appalachia. This first cut, “Shed Your Grace,” adds a gospel touch to the mix:

Other artists coming to the Ludlow Garage who have some roots connection include Poco (December 1), Donna the Buffalo (March 6), and Shovels & Rope (April 8).
Also slated are John Sebastian (February 6), The Outlaws (November 10), and Atlanta Rhythm Section (February 6).
Jazz and prog fans should know about Spyro Gyra, George Winston, Najee, The Levin Brothers, Kasim Sulton’s Utopia, and Brand X. That begins to tell you what’s coming to the Ludlow Garage, but here again is the full list. See you at the show!
