The Twangtown Paramours to Perform at The Barn at Redgate
To round out the 2013 “ RedGate Sessions,” The Twangtown Paramours, an acoustic Americana duo from Nashville, will be performing on Friday, November 15, at the Barn at Redgate (off HWY 39 at 200 Redgate Lane), in Somerset. Showtime is at 7:00 p.m., with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15.00 and available by calling 606-416-6512 or emailing <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The music of The Twangtown Paramours has been called “Sophisticated Americana,” and is a hybrid of the Nashville and Austin music scenes. The basis of their musical style originates in the music capital in which they live, but their lyrics are often influenced by poetic Texas songwriters. The duo consists of Mike Lewis, a successful Nashville songwriter, who sometimes plays upright bass for Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and MaryBeth Zamer, who sang background vocals for the late Eva Cassidy.
In 2012, the duo won Wildflower’s, Michael Terry People’s Choice award in Richardson, TX, and in both 2011 and 2013 they were finalist in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk contest. Their latest album, “The Promise of Friday Night,” was #2 in July on the Folk DJ chart and made it to two top 10 radio lists for the year, in New York City and Chicago. The album climbed to #7 on the Deep Roots Magazine top 50 album list for 2012.
It is likely The Twangtown Paramours will have songs in at least one major motion picture in 2014. They have been asked by Major Studio Partners in NYC, who has financed films such as Superman II and The Devil Wears Prada, to write music for upcoming films. Their music can be previewed at <http://www.twangtownparamours.com> or by tuning into WHAY 98.3 Free Range Radio, in Whitley City.
