Maiden Radio to Host Album Release Party for Wolvering on June 19th
The Clifton Center, located at 2117 Payne Street, will host a concert and album release party for Maiden Radio's Wolvering on Friday, June 19 at 8:00pm. The album is the result of a collaboration started six years ago between Cheyenne Mize, Julia Purcell and Joan Shelley. Pulling from an ever-deepening exploration of traditional Kentucky and Appalachian music, the trio aims at shining a light on some of more dark and lovely early-American songs that have survived through the years, re-arranged and sung in three part harmony. The evening will also include a performance by special guest Catherine Irwin.
The collection of songs was recorded in Wolverine, Michigan over the course of one week in January 2015. The performances were captured live around a few mics by Shane Leonard. When on the third day the access bridge flooded and iced over (with the propane tank soon to run out as well), the fireplace became an essential part of the session; you can hear the crackle sometimes as the songs fade in and out. The album is set to be released on June 9th on Ol Kentuck.
The Clifton Center's programming is made possible by the help of generous supporters, such as: MINI of Louisville, Louisville Metro Government, West Sixth Brewing Company, DD Williamson, Carmichael's Bookstore, Republic Bank, Joe Hayden Real Estate Team, 91.9 WFPK and the Friends of the Clifton Center. The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, also provides operating support to the Clifton Center with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
