Next weekend at Red Clay! Le Vent du Nord, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Forever Abbey Road, Songwriters Open Mic

Eddie Owen Presents: Le Vent du Nord

Live at Red Clay Music Foundry | Thursday March 23rd, 2017
“The quartet Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in (Quebec’s) progressive folk movement, and they leaven their hard-driving soulful music (a close cousin to Celtic music) with New Orleans polyphony and R&B.

Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band’s sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes.”

A leading figure of the progressive country movement of the 1970s, singer/songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard remains best known for authoring the perennial anthem "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother." Born November 13, 1946, in Soper, Oklahoma, Hubbard and his family relocated to Dallas during the mid-'50s; there he learned to play guitar, eventually forming a folk group with fellow aspiring musician Michael Martin Murphey. Befriended by the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Hubbard later formed a trio named Three Faces West.
Hubbard later toured the Southwestern coffeehouse circuit as a solo act before forming another group, Texas Fever; they too proved short-lived, and he returned to New Mexico to again take up residence at the Outpost.
In April 2015, Hubbard released another self-produced set, The Ruffian's Misfortune, which like his previous two albums was released through his own Bordello Records imprint. Later in 2015, Hubbard was slated to publish his long-awaited autobiography, A Life...Well, Lived.
