Riding that downriver swell, the talented east Tennessee Bluegrass band, Ducktown Station will perform its music at the Red Light Café in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, December 14th starting at 9:00 p.m.
The Red Light Café is an neighborhood music-“inpost” tucked within the trendy Morningside district. It sports an urbane demeanor most of the week, but each and every Thursday it goes Bluegrass to Newgrass with national and regional acts.
Ducktown Station will play songs from its debut album, Tennessee Twister (2006) which is laden with three-part soulful harmonies and dynamic musicianship. The original title track laments the life of a whiskey hauler dodging ever so diligent revenuer agents.
Ducktown Station maintains a traditional one-microphone performance style and appeals to all ages with it standard Bluegrass music fare of Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs and Dr. Ralph Stanley that easily glides back and forth into more avant-garde flavors mixed original music that has a touch of Beethoven, Metallica, Carter Family and the Dillards.
The Red Light Café offers delicious menu items and a wide selection of brews and beverages. It is found in a shot-gun style storefront in the redux manufacturing district one block off Monroe Drive at 553 Amsterdam Avenue (two blocks down from Piedmont Park). The drive into the complex has one of the most spectacular views of the nighttime Atlanta skyline and worth a pause.
Music jam sessions will take place from 7 p.m .prior to the show with Ducktown Station coming on stage at 9:00 p.m. Tickets at the door are $7 for the two hour show.
