    Dave Barnes

    Bijou Theatre, 803 South Gay Street, (865) 522-0832

    Singer-songwriter Dave Barnes is known for warmth and vulnerability as a lyricist. The words to his songs feel familiar long before the final chord is heard. For 10 years and with five well-loved studio albums, the Nashville-based artist has effortlessly melded pop, country, rock, and soul. Barnes' sixth and latest album, Stories To Tell - due out March 13, 2012 on Razor & Tie Records - is a perfect combination of what fans have grown to love about him and an interesting newness. Organic instrumentation with expansive synthetic textures and modern R&B-flavored beats, this album was written from a new place for Dave - father-to-be - and recorded in a new city - Los Angeles - by pop-rock savant John Fields.

    The Infamous Stringdusters

    Bijou Theatre, 803 South Gay Street, (865) 522-0832

    To celebrate the release of their new album Let It Go, Grammy-nominated bluegrass expansionists The Infamous Stringdusters are embarking on a cross-country spring tour. The album will be a milestone for the group - Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle) and Travis Book (upright bass) - that showcases their eight-year evolution from IBMA Award-winning bluegrass torchbearers to multi-dimensional string explorers, mixing tight song craft and a flare for improvisation. It's acoustic music with nods to tradition, but as the New York Times said when describing the band: "genre doesn't hold them back. The Infamous Stringdusters don't leave bluegrass behind; they're stretching it from within."

    Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls

    Bijou Theatre, 803 South Gay Street, (865) 522-0832

    The recurring theme throughout Tape Deck Heart, Frank Turner's fifth album, is change. Those who have followed Turner's career since he went solo in 2005 won't be surprised. After 1,400 incendiary live shows and four acclaimed albums, last year saw the musician previously known as a punk poet become (whisper it) a sort of pop star. Turner, of course, would never describe himself as a pop star. He prefers the word 'entertainer', with its tradition of vaudeville, theatre and music hall. His emergence from the underground he still adores ' and still regards himself as part of ' was tinged with trepidation. 'Insane things have happened since England Keep My Bones came out,' he says. 'The success I've experienced was entirely unexpected. It made me think about where I started and where I'm heading.

    Elvis Costello Solo

    Tennessee Theatre, 604 South Gay Street, (865) 684-1200

    Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. However, he has also entered into acclaimed collaborations with Burt Bacharach, The Brodsky Quartet, Paul McCartney, Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, guitarist Bill Frisell, composer Roy Nathanson, The Charles Mingus Orchestra, record producer and songwriter T Bone Burnett and Allen Toussaint. Costello's songs have been recorded by a great number of artists. The list of performers reflects his interest in a wide range of musical styles: George Jones, Chet Baker, Johnny Cash, and Roy Orbison. During his career Costello has received several prestigious honors, including two Ivor Novello Awards for songwriting, a Dutch Edison Award with The Brodsky Quartet for 'The Juliet Letters', the Nordoff-Robbins Silver Clef Award, a BAFTA for the music written with Richard Harvey for Alan Bleasdale's television drama series 'G.B.H.' and a Grammy for "I Still Have That Other Girl" from his 1998 collaboration with Burt Bacharach, 'Painted From Memory'.
