We’re very excited to announce a new addition to the Third Man lexicon… A very cool collaboration with Red Digital Cinema Camera Company that we are calling The Blue Room Spotlight Series. The Spotlight Series features visually arresting, intimate performances in our Blue Room venue, shot by in-house film and video guru Brad Holland on RED cameras, and posted in 4K resolution. The Blue Room Spotlight Series will feature a variety of artists either local to Nashville or passing through town... They could be TMR recording stars or just artists we admire and respect. All genres of the musical spectrum will be represented, and artists are encouraged to re-interpret their material in ways that fans previously haven’t heard. Anything goes, and we'll be there to capture it.
Since tomorrow is our Detroit Rock n Roll hero’s 50th birthday, we’re going to go ahead and launch this baby with Danny Kroha's incredible version of Clarence Ashley’s "Walking Boss" on a baritone dulcimer that Danny tells us previously adorned a friends home as a purely ornamental display. A recorded version of "Walking Boss" is featured on Danny’s Third Man release Angels Watching Over Me. Danny, of course, is also one of the main wo/men in The Gories who are currently on tour in Europe, go and check them out if you can, and don’t forget we’ve just released a new single by the band which you can pick up right now, right here.
