Dust off your Mr. Microphone, Good-lookin', we'll pick you up at 6:30! Bobblehead makes its bustling, bubbling debut at Batesville Market on September 30. It's all crash hucksterism, so say the tabloids, but come hear for yourselves. Doug Bishop, Frank Bechter, and David Jacobs bring their own brand of impetuous hillside blues for your listening pleasure. A rollicking mixture of original tunes.

About Aimee McDavitt:
After a 25-year retreat from creating art, I have returned with quite a different perspective. I am living with chronic illness, and while it is rarely the subject of my art, this experience has emphasized the importance of learning to seek, create, and enjoy happiness within the confines of my situation. My process of creating paintings is less about the final product than it is an exhalation of personal encounters, connections, experiences, and strong emotions. I am a self-taught painter and have shown work at Studio IX, Gallery IX, and The Local. I currently have work shown at Second Street Gallery and Southern Café & Music Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In “Earthquakes & Redemption,” most of my pieces are created with acrylic paint, using free and unapologetic experimentation of self-taught techniques to create texture and mood. Drips, drops, swirling, crinkling, and layering of colors feature throughout the pieces. Use of palette knife and texture are characteristics of my abstract work. This show tells a story of the damage that is done by anger, jealousy, broken promises, heartache, even cruelty (earthquakes), and the subsequent restoration that brings hope, renewal, exoneration, and healing (redemption).

Ultimately, my painting is a vehicle for me to continue to live more fully than I ever have — to truly live until I reach the end of my lifetime. Through my art and personal connections, I endeavor to leave behind happy memories.

About David Tewksbury:

Tewksbury pens songs that deliver emotional honesty rooted in deeply felt real-life experiences. His music covers the gamut from grooving bluesy rock to lullaby ballads. As a life-long lover of music of all kinds – chant to jazz and blues, trip-hop to opera, R&B to indie pop – David Tewksbury has been performing his original songs since 1998, beginning with jazz-pop band Image, and then acoustic duo Zofia Drone through 2002, when he started performing as solo artist. Over the years, he has also offered his musical gifts for three houses of worship, spanning music styles from a cappella hymns to urban gospel. Inspired by art rock, jazz fusion and R&B on the radio, Tewksbury weds rock’s intensity to soul’s intimacy, with lyrics that cover the gamut from social justice to heartbreak to life-celebrating anthems. Van Morrison, Ben Harper, Amos Lee and Sting are solid influences, while inspiration comes from all corners of the musical prophetical-poetical world.

Batesville, VA  22924 Map

The Randy Johnston 3 featuring Jonah Kane-West is a modern incarnation of the timeless guitar, organ, and drums trio sound. This combination is arguably the most versatile and fullest trio sound of all time. With internationally acclaimed artist Randy Johnston on guitar and vocals, the prolific Drex Weaver on drums, and the phenomenal Jonah Kane-West on organ, this group is capable of swinging, or rocking for that matter, with the best of ‘em. Adaptable and dynamic, it’s a jazz group at its core. Refined but not polite, it’s bluesy and funky soul music with a flair of southern rock.

"Blue jam music," is the self-defined style of the Charlottesville, VA-based band Second Draw. Band members say their music is “somewhere between first class and coach, between fine sippin’ whisky and moonshine; somewhere between bluegrass, jam band and rock." Their sound is a mixture of bluegrass, country, rock and blues jamband-style. Aaron Evans' (Indecision, Alligator) incredible noodling bluesjazz guitar has been described as a cross between Duane Allman, Jerry Garcia and Walter Becker... but in a good way!

Second Draw is Craig Dougald (drums), Aaron Evans (guitar), Rob Frayser (mandolin, vocals), Jim Keathley (bass guitar), Jeff Luross (accordion), and Shannon Williams (banjo, vocals).
