New Directions in Appalachian Music

chadbourne 2014

Following the the success of last summer’s Insect & Western Residency, Dr. Eugene Chadbourne has reassembled a band to reconstruct the past and alter your perceptions of what Appalachian Music can be. Featuring a slew of original Chadbourne compositions plus key compositions from the past (including music from Duke Ellington, Cyndi Lauper, Rick James, Joe Walsh, Captain Beefheart, and many more) this is music that will kick down your doors of perception and permanently alter your mind. Or at the very least you can have a beer and enjoy some weirdness.

 

The band includes a rotating cast of pranksters including:

Jeb Bishop

Dave Doyle

Chris Eubank

James Gilmore

David Menestres

Dan Ruccia

Carrie Shull

Ken Ray Wilemon

and other kooks

 

The party start at 8pm every Monday in July at Neptune’s Parlour in downtown Raleigh. $5.

IndyWeek blurbage:

Eugene Chadbourne’s foremost reputation is that of a wild-eyed experimentalist, a zany pied piper who plays electrified yard utensils and modifies guitars to pursue the outer limits of expression. But Chadbourne, who has lived in Greensboro for the last three decades, has lone worked from a core of tradition, rupturing the songs and forms he loves only in an endless quest to find new meanings and values for old music. Last year, for instance, he collaborated with a Brooklyn band on Merles Just Want to Have Fun, a vivid reimagining of Merle Haggard favorites. During this month-long residency of Mondays, Chadbourne will resurrect his New Directions in Appalachian Music project with a wide net or area improvisers. The songbook collects standards new and old, obvious and esoteric (Rick James, meet Duke Ellington; The Beatles, meet Joe Walsh) and attempts to rupture and then rebuild them one by one. Chadbourne is a bona fide American original, a pioneer of extreme crossover plundering and pillaging. This is a rare chance to watch a legend move at will. 8 p.m., $5 (suggested donation), kingsbarcade.com. — Grayson Haver Currin
