Honky Tonk Thursdays
Featuring LP Kelly & The Streetsweepers
Thursday, February 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Put on your boots and get ready to scoot across the dance floor! Every Thursday night from 7-9 pm we offer highly danceable country music. This week we are featuring LP Kelly & The Streetsweepers. If you enjoy honky tonk, Western swing, and good old classic country, you’ll want to join us on Thursday nights for some good food and a spacious dance floor. This is a donation-based event and all are welcome.
About LP Kelly & The Streetsweepers
The sound of LP Kelly comes broadly from the early days of American roots music: when bluesmen sang from front porches on hot afternoons; when swing bands played dances in speakeasies late into the night; when troubadours were tradesmen and not celebrities. From his base of operations in the Appalachian Mountain town of Blacksburg, VA, Kelly has worked tirelessly to encourage a renaissance in music that has a history and a place – not a watered-down Americana that could exist anywhere on the Internet, nor a rigid recreation of the past, but original music that demands the listener dig deeper to find its roots in geography and time. It’s original music that still sounds familiar. A couple of guitars, a banjo or two, a suitcase of harmonicas, and a whole lot of guts.
A veteran of other recording bands (The Jugbusters, The Don’t Tell Darlings), LP Kelly (formerly Old Man Kelly) released his first solo album, Songs, Stories, Shanties, and Shenanigans in 2013 and his second album, Off My Lawn, in 2016. The start of 2021 brings Love Songs For Loners, a new collection of ten original songs. In the intervening time, LP Kelly has made hundreds of public appearances at bars, festivals, swing dances, square dances, radio shows, house concerts, and on any other stage run by folks who understand that American music has both a past and a future, and that being there matters.
