“Mystical country, like an eerie yellowing photograph” – David Bowie

“A small but grand statement, recorded in a week, but achieving country-soul greatness”
– UNCUT * * * * stars

“MC Taylor writes folk music that is at once firmly steeped in tradition and immediately accessible.” – NPR Music

“Fans of Will Oldham and Bill Callahan will find much to admire in the work of MC Taylor, a revivalist who also lectures in folklore.” – Guardian UK

HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER is Durham, North Carolina-based songwriter M.C. Taylor, in partnership with multi-instrumentalist and recordist Scott Hirsch, who lives in Brooklyn, New York. The pair have been playing music together for nearly two decades. Taylor and Hirsch are clear that they draw inspiration from a variety of sources, including the blue-collar mysticism of Ronnie Lane and Richard & Linda Thompson; the high haunted atmospheres of John Martyn and Talk Talk; and American vernacular music writ large (from Archie Brownlee to the Staple Singers; Charlie Poole to Merle Haggard).

William Tyler is a Nashville guitarist and composer. He spent years woodshedding and touring with Nashville groups like Lambchop and Silver Jews before breaking away to focus on his own version of instrumental guitar music. 2010’s Behold the Spirit, William Tyler’s first album under his own name, was celebrated by Pitchfork as “the most vital, energized album by an American solo guitarist in a decade or more” and established him as a critical favorite, the picker who, according to his friend and tour mate M.C. Taylor from Hiss Golden Messenger, “connects the dots between Sandy Bull, Richard Thompson, Bruce Langhorne, and Reggie Young.”

Recommended If You Like: Helping Kids in Need (not a band)

BLACK BIRDS OF PARADISE describe themselves as “just another post modern psyche band with vibraphone filling the role usually reserved for guitar or organ.

CHARLES RIVERA is a guitarist from Louisville, Kentucky currently known for “continually redefining what living in the moment can truly entail….Charles’ style of no-holds-barred slobber-knocker music is said to have similar effects to eating human meat in the Canadian wilderness, thus earning him his nickname of ‘The Jazz Wendigo.’”

He’ll be playing in two groups this evening, QEN (a duo with drummer Greg Morris), and larger combo THE CHARLES RIVERA ENSEMBLE.

ABOUT STAR DUCK CHARITIES:

For over 15 years the members of Star Duck Charities have volunteered at St. Joseph’s Children’s Home located on Frankfort Ave. in Louisville, Kentucky. Originally, members volunteered their time and effort every second Saturday in August to operate the “Duck Pond” booth at the Home’s annual fund raising picnic. Now, its members have formed Star Duck Charities as a way to do more for needy children in the Greater Louisville area year-round. With six founding board members and over fifty volunteers, Star Duck Charities aims to provide much needed items and services to some of Louisville’s youngest in need.

At Star Duck Charities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, 100% of all funds and donated items will go directly to children in need; none of its members or volunteers profit from donations. Perhaps our most important program is our monthly birthday party. Each month we take those children at St. Joe’s who have a birthday during that month to Gatiland for pizza and games. Afterwards each child gets a $100 shopping spree to a store of their choice.

In addition to our birthday party program, annual school supplies drive, and other community outreach we will continue to work with our founding corporate sponsor Cambridge Construction. With our 16 years of service to St. Joe’s through the Duck Pond, we have raised over $36,000 and been the source of countless smiles at the annual picnic. As opportunities arise and we expand our efforts, we will always be preparing for our involvement with the booth that is our namesake, the “Duck Pond”.
