Event description

Description

Bring your own chair and relax under the stars for one of the garden's favorites, southern troubador Grayson Capps, this time with violin player Molly Thomas and the man that can play anything, Corky Hughes.

We've kicked the food up a notch, with Gulf Coast Crawfish Co. coming all the way from New Orleans to cater this one-of-a-kind event.

We'll have the tables spread out with shrimp ready to devour.

*Seating for this special event is limited, so be sure to secure your ticket today.

----------

Singer-songwriter Grayson Capps hails from South Alabama and spent a decade in New Orleans. He enthralls his listeners with tales of Southern Gothic. In his own words, he explains: "I write songs which have the voice of dead prophets masquerading as town drunks screaming 'look at us we're pretty, too!'" Capps is an American gem, equal parts country singer, bluesman, rock star, philosopher, and poet.

He has produced four critically acclaimed studio albums and made a cameo appearance in the Golden Globe Award-nominated film A Love Song For Bobby Long. As Jambase recently declared, "New Orleans' marvel Grayson Capps is slowly building one of the most phenomenal songbooks in America today. If ever there were a cat primed to pick up where Lowell George and John Prine have left off, it's Capps."

He is currently touring the world in support of his new album, The Lost Cause Minstrels, on the Brooklyn record label Royal Potato Family. He will have two songs featured in the upcoming Screen Gems film Straw Dogs starring James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, and Alexander Skarsgård.

"Capps' Tennessee Williams-meets-Charles Bukowski lyrical style is equal parts Southern Gothic and Los Angeles noir. His songs are literate, imaginative, and sometimes magical, his storytelling skills matched by an uncanny sense of musical history that will grow on you like a kudzu vine." --Blurt

"Take the poetry of Texas troubadour Townes Van Zandt, combine with Steve Earle's edgy attitude and stir with a little cup of the bayou-blues (think Howlin' Wolf) and you start to get a taste of Capps' scrumptious gothic gumbo." --American Songwriter

All proceeds from the evening will benefit From Ground Up Community Garden and Dixon School of the Arts, a Pensacola-based K-8 school offering some of the best fine arts programs in the region.
