Jim Lauderdale Coming To Live at the Ludlow Garage


Live and Ludlow Garage is now up and running, with several concerts under its belt and many more scheduled; check the calendar for more info. Also, the Garage serves food and alcohol every night, regardless of whether music is playing. I wanted to highlight just one of the shows on tap, this one featuring veteran roots and Americana singer and songwriter Jim Lauderdale; the show is on Saturday, December 12. If you’re not familiar with Lauderdale’s music, I’ll bet you know some of his colleagues. He’s collaborated with Ralph Stanley and Buddy Miller, and he’s also one of the few musicians to work extensively with Robert Hunter other than, well, Jerry Garcia from the Grateful Dead. Robert Hunter, of course, is one of the great storytellers among lyricists, and just as Jerry Garcia turned those stories into unforgettable songs, Jim Lauderdale has also established a strong rapport with Hunter over several albums. In the intimate and acoustically fabulous Live at the Ludlow Garage, Lauderdale’s music will have an opportunity to really shine. Here’s a Hunter-Lauderdale gem entitled “Jawbone” (even the name of the song sounds like vintage Robert Hunter):
