After a successful summer run, WNKU is excited to announce a continuation of our partnership with the Ballroom at the Taft. Beginning September 1st, WNKU will welcome a series of shows featuring some of our favorite acts.
Ten years ago, Tift Merritt released her first album, “Bramble Rose,” to a chorus of “the next Lucinda Williams” or “the next Emmylou Harris” or “the next fill-in-the-name” of your favorite female Americana singer-songwriter.
Jackson Browne did double duty Saturday at PNC Pavilion. Not only did the singer-songwriter thrill the crowd with entries from his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame songbook, but he served as emcee and gracious host of a rotating cast of characters that featured Sara Watkins, who opened the show and joined Browne for the second half of his set.
For Mindy Smith, the devil has always been in the details. And, for that matter, in the big picture as well. The Nashville singer-songwriter, a pastor’s daughter who attended Cincinnati Bible College before making music her career, recently released her fifth album, the self-titled “Mindy Smith.” It’s a landmark project, her first record since leaving the Vanguard label.
