COMING from the Nashville tradition of songwriters who showcase their work in the round, three Bristol-based artists, all with very different styles, have been brought together by Nashville native Russell Walker for the third ‘In the Round’ session at the Folk House Café.
At times actually performed in a circle, but most often in a row, the artists take turns to sing, listen and share stories about music, the road, and whatever else they feel like talking about. The singers then join together for one or two songs at the end, as seen and heard in the famous Bluebird Café or Station Inn in Nashville, Tennessee.
