The collaborations between Callaghan’s and American Songwriter Magazine have resulted in unforgettable performances. This time, “The Mayor of Lower Broadway” will take over the Oakleigh Garden District for a special performance.
Joshua Hedley has established a reputation for being one of Music City’s hottest up-and-coming hired guns. Over the years, he has lent his prowess on the fiddle to notables such as Justin Townes Earle, Robert Ellis and Jonny Fritz. Now Hedley is stepping to the front of the stage for his first personal endeavor with help from Jack White’s Third Man Records.
Although his solo debut has yet to be released, Hedley’s joint performance with Erin Rae will provide a sneak peak at what he’s created. Hedley is a country artist steeped in the classic sounds of the early 20th century. The hypnotic twang of his fiddle is joined by round after round of deep, warm vocals.
Early James will set the tone as the opener. James is one of those wonderful artists who’ll come armed with his faithful acoustic, siphoning the marrow of Americana and blending it into a beautiful beast. This singer-songwriter should be a hit with the Azalea City crowd.
