Shelby Eicher "Hillbilly Jazz"

Saturday, June 3, 2017 - 7:30pm
Robert J. LaFortune Studio

Hillbilly Jazz is a fun show drawing on the movement in Country music that was influenced by Bob Wills. Wills brought Swing and Boogie Woogie rhythms along with electric instruments and drums to a genre that was largely acoustic. Many artists in the 1950s produced this fresh sound. Hillbilly Jazz will have an all star line-up: Shelby Eicher, Tommy Crook, Steve Bagsby, Jared Johnson and Nathan Eicher and will tap into this great sound with tunes by Merle Travis, Ernest Tubb and others.
