Theres this show that Eddie Stubbs hosts and WSM broadcasts live each week, different from the one thats gone on for decades in a big theatre cast as a barn. This show has only been around for a monthin a barn behind the Loveless Café, no lessand its lineup each Wednesday is all-Americana (its not Little Jimmy Dickens scene). The fifth installment of Music City Roots combines a trio of rising acoustic bands with an old hand at writing and singing songs of a folk persuasion. Holy Ghost Tent Revivala Vaudevillian punk sextet with hornsand the amped up jam-string band the New Familiars are both from North Carolina, just like the Avett Brothers. The Black Lilliesa recent outgrowth of Robinella and the CCstringband and the everybodyfieldsplay brooding, bluesy mountain music. And Nanci Griffith is the odd one out, with 30 years of warm-hearted, perceptive storytelling to her credit.
