Cast King show in Nashville Feb 3

Here’s notice from Chris Davis on a show coming up that looks great,
at the
Primitive Baptist Church (that’s at 4602 Indiana, which I
think is in
Sylvan Park). I haven't heard of this guy, but he sounds
like a direct line back to what lies underneath country music.

Feb. 3rd,
7 pm, $6.
Cast King (Sun Records recording artist with Country Drifters and
Miller Sisters; recently released debut album under his own name on
Locust Records;
Old Sand Mountain, ALA)
John Allingham
Dan Tyler
John Smiff XXV
There will be a potluck dinner beforehand starting at 6 pm. Attendees
are invited to bring a covered dish. Vegetarian dishes welcome.
Bio information on Cast King is available at 
A google search for Cast King should lead you to an Alabama
folklore Society web page with an excellent radio show featuring
some of the early 1950s sides King cut for Sun Records in his
group the Country Drifters and as a sideman with the Miller
Sisters. King also cut around 6 unreleased masters for Sun that
hopefully will see the light of day (past status as bonus tracks on
a multi-benjamin Bear Family box).
John Allingham is co-leader of The Cherry Blossoms and The
Brambles and the leader of Arizona Drains.
Dan Tyler bio information available at 
John Smiff XXV is the stage name of clothing designer and
visual artist Michael Enright.
