Folk-rocker Richard Burnett among two strong acts this weekendPosted Wednesday, August 29, 2012, at 5:10 PM
Richard Burnett, who also performs with his bands Honeyshine, Catfish Jackson and Pope County Bootleggers, will perform a "freedom gig" on Friday and Saturday nights with just his guitar, dobro and a washboard player at Cathouse Lounge / Pied Piper starting at 8 p.m. both nights. No cover.
First, Americana / folk rocker Richard Burnett and the Electric Laundry Lady of Fayetteville will be performing a so-called "freedom gig" at Cathouse Lounge / Pied Piper Pub Friday and Saturday nights starting around 8 p.m. each night. There is no cover charge.
Burnett plays the guitar and dobro and sings, and his trusty assistant plays the washboard.
Burnett has several different bands -- Honeyshine, Catfish Jackson and Pope County Bootleggers among them -- but he says he particularly enjoys these "freedom gigs" where he and the Lady get to play "whatever we want," typically performing some originals as well as a wide range of alt-country, bluegrass, blues and old rock covers from the likes of Waylon Jennings, Muddy Waters (i.e. Rollin' and Tumblin'), Jerry Jeff Walker, John Prine, Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakum and Freddie King.
I have seen Burnett perform solo and with his bands many times, and he puts on a good show. This'll be a fun one. The music will run till about midnight both nights.
Also performing both nights, but over at The Lumberyard, are members of the Hard-core Troubadours. On Friday night, they're holding a sort of informal jam session from 6 to 9 p.m., and Saturday night is their official reunion show.
This group till last year hadn't played together in nearly a decade. They were quite popular around town back in 2000-2001, after being founded by singer/songwriter Will Steele and Big Daddy Rabbitt. Since meeting back up last year, the group has played regionally around Missouri and Arkansas, including the Mountain Home Folk Fest and a number of clubs and other venues.
Their music would be classified as Americana, original roots, rock and country/blues, a.k.a. "Outlaw Country."
Steele, who released an album called "Sing Me a Memory" on Lone Star Records, has been described as having a voice that is "powerfully soulful. His songs reintroduce honesty and his rugged individualism puts him on the cutting edge of a brand of American music first called 'progressive country.'"
The group's show on Saturday will include special guest Dan the Baseman.
