THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Outlaws roll through

Posted By on Fri, Aug 2, 2013 at 3:26 PM

FRIDAY

Few people have had a more fascinating childhood than Shooter Jennings. Growing up traveling on the road with his pa Waylon, who often toured with Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash (who is also his godfather), his musical education was unlike any other. Dubbed “Shooter” by his dad after pissing all over a nurse right after birth, Jennings has been performing ever since. Of the second generation of country royalty, Jennings is one of the more talented. His mix of rock (a genre he was far more interested in at the beginning of his musical career) and outlaw country puts everything produced by the Nashville pop country machine to shame. Tonight, he plays at John’s Alley in Moscow, Idaho, starting at 9:30 pm. Call 208-883-7662 for more info.

Also happening tonight:

An Evening with Cake at Festival at Sandpoint

The Rustics, West My Friend, Jacob Jones (yes, the same one who writes for The Inlander) at Mootsy’s

SATURDAY

Back in 1941, folk musicians Woody Guthrie (Bob Dylan’s idol), Pete Seeger, Lee Hays and Mill Lampell piled in a truck and took off across the country to spread the gospel of unionism. They dubbed themselves the Almanac Singers. Nearly 70 years later, Rik Palieri and George Mann are rolling in their tire tracks, singing at some of the same places and towns as the Almanac’s, inviting local musicians to join in, as in the original tour. With banjos, guitars and a bag full of union songs, The Almanac Trail comes through these parts Saturday at 7 pm at the Steelworkers Local 338 Union Hall, 14015 E. Trent Ave., in Spokane Valley.

Also happening Saturday:

Art on the Green with la Dolce Musica, Coeur d’Alene Symphony, Kris Orlowski, Camille Bloom Trio, Milonga and more at North Idaho College
