Songwriters tonight, Thacker Mountain tomorrow

The Powerhouse is hosting a "Jambalaya Jam" tonight from 7-9pm featuring jambalaya from the local catering firm Party Waiting To Happen and members of the Oxford Songwriters' Association. Artists scheduled to perform include: Tad Wilkes, Jimmy Phillips, Katie Dintelman, Donovan McCain, and Jeff Callaway. Cost is $6


Thacker Mountain Radio is holding a special show Wednesday night at 7pm at the Lyric. I believe it's being put on because this week the University is hosting the Whole Schools Initiative, a teacher's program that encourages integrating art into school programs, but everyone is welcome.

The featured guests at the show are: pianist Eli Yamin, a featured instructor at the Whole Schools program who is the director of the Middle School Jazz Academy at Lincoln Center; the Corinth bluegrass group Lisa Lambert and the Pine Ridge Boys; and local authors Tom Franklin and Beth Ann Fennelly, who just returned home from a long stint in Brazil.
