Will Kimbrough is an American roots insider who grew up on Alabama’s gulf coast, honed his musical skills on the club circuit, moved to Nashville, and started working with folks like Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Little Feat, Steve Earle, and Jimmy Buffett who says,”Will can charm a crowd whether fronting a band, or playing solo. That's why you see his songs on my albums and his face on our stage.” The Americana Music Association named him Instrumentalist of the Year in 2004 for his playing on anything with strings. Along with his scores of albums recorded with other artists and as a member of several bands, he’s released six solo albums, including his latest, Sideshow Love, which American Songwriter calls “thoroughly charming” and “filled with expertly crafted, wonderfully heartfelt songs filled with passion, pain, humor, and hope.” PopMatters compares him to his esteemed musical compadres Rodney Crowell and Todd Snider, and says he “has the same self-deprecating sense of humor and instrumental chops on guitar, banjo, mandolin, keyboards and more that make his story songs into mini-operas."
Brigitte DeMeyer sings country with soul. Her sound is rooted in the South, with a bluesy emotional edge and a gospel-influenced intensity. PopMatters praises her “powerful and creative musical intelligence.” The Morton Report says that she “combines the soft beauty of Emmylou Harris with the more rough and tumble take of Lucinda Williams.” Americana UK calls her voice “simply astonishing.” The praise is well-deserved. Brigitte was born in the Midwest, grew up in California, and made her way to Nashville in 2010, where she crossed paths with Will, who contributes his string wizardry and songwriting skill to her recently released sixth album, Savannah Road, a glorious recording full of beautifully crafted gems. The chance to hear Will and Brigitte together onstage at the Freight is an opportunity not to be missed!
