The next Lost River Sessions LIVE! concert will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 19 at the Capitol Arts Center and features indie Americana quartet Mipso and special guest Amythyst Kiah.
Born from North Carolina’s broad range of musical influences, Mipso’s sound is an “undeniable alchemy of the historical musical traditions of the rural south and their progressive home of Chapel Hill,” according to a news release from WKU Public Broadcasting, which produces Lost River Sessions. “A discernible and rising force in the Americana musical genre, Mipso’s music is lush and forward moving – Appalachia melds with modern alt-country, hints of folk-rock are leavened with a sly and subversive sense of humor, and underneath it all is a genuine and moving passion for the ever-evolving traditions of Americana. With the recent release of the band’s fifth album, Edges Run (April 2018/Anti-Fragile Music), Mipso continues the complex dance of looking back and moving forward with grace and beauty.”
Opening the show is special guest Amythyst Kiah, who Rolling Stone magazine described as “one of roots music’s most exciting emerging talents.”
Lobby doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 for general admission and $10.50 for students.
