Next week, fiddle champion Kimber Ludiker comes through her hometown with her Grammy-nominated bluegrass act Della Mae in tow. The Nashville-based four-piece has performed in the area on multiple occasions; this time the group is touting their forthcoming self-titled album (arriving May 12). The disc is a foray into an even more country-tinged sound than Della Mae’s previous two efforts. Incredibly organic production, including breaths and instrument scrapes, makes the music sound like it’s being played in your own living room. A portion of the proceeds from Thursday night’s concert will be donated to the initial Blue Waters Youth Camp happening this summer.
