Over the week of September 19-24, while AmericanaFest flooded every corner Nashville, Luck Reunion and yours truly holed up in an East Nashville mansion - bringing together Americana's finest for inspired collaborations. Here is a glimpse of what happened at the Luck Mansion.
For five days, artists set up in the parlor room of the pop-up "Luck Mansion" to perform for audiences of no more than 15 covering classics — from Guy Clark to Concrete Blonde — or, in some cases, a brand new song co-written by the pair on-the-spot. (Parker Millsap/Sarah Jarosz, John Paul White/Rodney Crowell, and Langhorne Slim/Lillie Mae Rische all churned out new original tunes!)
The tape was rolling for the entire week with Third Man engineers at the helm, capturing these stunning performances to take beyond the walls of the mansion to showcase the soulful collaborations that occurred. Luck Reunion and Third Man Records will be releasing ongoing video of the sessions as well as a collection of 45's, rolling out one-by-one in early 2017. More on that in the coming weeks...
Have a look at what's went down and what's in store below... and head to NPR for their take on the sessions!

Third Man is happy to announce the contents of our 30th Vault package, our final offering of 2016. This time around we wanted to showcase something special from every one of Jack White's wide berth of musical projects, as well as some really cool extras from a pretty special event that fans were able to catch a glimpse of during Sunday's Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown Nashville episode, but weren't able to hear in full. We got so excited putting this package together we decided to break with tradition and offer 2 full LPs for the first time.

INTRODUCING THIRD MAN BOOKS' FIRST BOOK OF FICTION!
"Transformative, wise and vivid with the quality of fantasy and fable."
—Sheree Renée Thomas, editor Dark Matter
"Kiini Ibura Salaam’s short stories (and the characters who inhabit them) are vital, fantastic in all senses of the word, audacious and tender."
—Kelly Link, author of Get In Trouble and Stranger Things Happen
Excited is not the right word, maybe it's ecstatic, or maybe it's an otherworldly word that we have yet to experience, but might discover while exploring all the worlds and beings in Kiini Ibura Salaam's new collection of speculative fiction short stories, When the World Wounds. In this eagerly-awaited collection, Kiini Ibura Salaam continues her exploration of the dark, the sensual, and the mysterious with fiction that disturbs, delights, and dazzles. The five stories and one novella collected in When the World Wounds examine the tumultuous nature of the human condition through such wild imaginings as sensual encounters with deer, escapism in a dystopia prison, and volcano women. In “The Taming,” a lupine creature is trapped by beasts whose nefarious nature is beyond their prey’s understanding. In “Hemmie’s Calenture,” a woman escaping enslavement is thrust into a war between gods. “The Pull of the Wing” is the prequel to Salaam’s wildly popular "Of Wings, Nectar, and Ancestors" trilogy. “Because of the Bone Man” transports readers to the desolate landscape of post-Katrina New Orleans and the struggle of the city’s culture bearers to carry on. A welcome follow-up to Salaam’s award-winning Ancient, Ancient, When the World Wounds is perceptive and engaging as it examines our world’s callous and perilous landscapes while tickling the imagination and startling the senses.
