Wooden Blues, April 15: Lou Shields, Micah Kesselring, Art by Philip English

Wooden Blues returns on Friday, April 15 to J&J Winery / Noble Order Brewing, in Richmond, Indiana. The music begins at 7 PM with an opening performance by Achilles Tenderloin. I’ve included a map below for any  first-timers, out there. Don’t forget to RSVP on Facebook!

Each month, the Wooden Blues concert series features a different pair of the finest acoustic blues artists around, carefully selected and hosted by Achilles Tenderloin.

April’s featured acts are Lou Shields and Micah Kesselring. We are very lucky to have these two phenomenal players join us on Friday, April 15. Please drop in and give them a warm welcome.

Each Wooden Blues event also kicks off a monthly art show! April’s featured artist is Phil English. Show up between 5 and 7 to check out Phil’s paintings and meet the artist himself.

Lou Shields

Lou ShieldsA self-described “artist, musician, rambler and teacher,” Lou Shields recently relocated from his Chicago area homeland to a remote cabin in Southwest Wisconsin.

Drawing inspiration from early and mid-twentieth century folk and country blues, Lou uses guitar, harmonica and banjo to belt out impressive original songs. All the while, his feet tap out the rhythm, with on a bass stomp on one foot and a skateboard with bottle caps nailed to it on the other.

American RelicVisit Lou’s website to learn more about the man himself and drop by Reverbnation to sample a few tunes. His 2015 release American Relic is currently available for purchase here.


Micah Kesselring

Hailing from Southeastern Ohio, award-winning Piedmont and Delta style guitarist Micah Kesselring has wowed audiences the world over, from Columbus to Colombia — Memphis to Washington — with guitar licks that slide from dolorous to dizzying. In 2016, Micah made the finals at the 32nd International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, placing in the Top 8 out of nearly 300 acts worldwide.

Micah’s latest studio album, Cabin Fever Blues (2015), features seven original songs alongside adaptations of four Delta blues classics. Check it out on Micah’s Bandcamp page, along with his 2013 release, Log Cabin Blues. You can also visit Reverbnation to learn more about Micah and his music.
