Meet the Artists
Shelby Bottom Duo
Michael August and Nell Levin formed the Shelby Bottom String Band in 2008. Shelby Bottom Duo continues the band's tradition of entertaining, irreverent social commentary, humanity and humor. Their repertoire includes originals like "East Nashville Rag", the title cut of the band's CD, "Displacement Blues", named by the Tennessean as "Nashville's newest social justice anthem", and "Fat and Bald", an audience favorite about life's unintended consequences. They also delight listeners with some obscure, quirky songs that deserve a wider audience. . . Check out our new song Welcome Home, a rallying call for action on affordable housing.

Joe Hill Roadshow

This limited edition CD of a previously unreleased 1974 recording session by Goldrush (Bob Lucas, Brian Lappin, Nell Levin, John Orie Stith and Tim Duran) will surprise folks both familiar and unfamiliar with this legendary band. This CD project came together when Mark Hood, who engineered the 1974 sessions, found the original tape in his basement. Now, 43 years later, you can hear how Goldrush, ostensibly a "bluegrass band", was pushing the envelope. The CD comes with a history of the band and some classic photos. You can order it here.
