Numero Group: By The Numbers

Nashvillains Unite!

Following the release of Caroline Peyton’s two brilliant Bar-B-Q albums last year, Ms. Peyton returned to the stage for the first time since the early ’80s for a performance in the Basement of Grimey’s in Nashville. It went well enough that she agreed to perform at a Bloomington, Indiana reunion concert of sorts (think a real life Mighty Wind), but has been quiet since.

When her Bloomington alum Mary Flower decided to come through Nashville, it was only appropriate that they co-bill. This Thursday, Caroline returns to the stage for another two rounds, of which we encourage you to attend at least one if you’re in the greater Nashville area.

The details:

Caroline did 2 tunes from the Bloomington records–“Engram” and “Call of the Wild.” Some Buffy Sainte-Marie, a Bill Monroe song, “In the Pines,” an original called “Happy Home” and a couple blues–Henry Thomas’ “Fishin’ Blues” and “Built for Comfort,” with Mary Flower playing behind her. The voice: as great as ever (Caroline’s technique constitutes a kind of Master Class for aspiring singers), and the country/bluegrass tinge even more noticeable. Flower is a fine picker in the Piedmont tradition. Great show.

I got the Mock-Up album in 1973 in South Bend, IN as I remember. I recently got a device that records records to mp3 and that was the first album I recorded. Mark Gray was a great piano player.
