Roxie Watson, Kevin Jackson
Atlanta quartet Roxie Watson celebrates the release of its fourth album, "Try a Little Kindness," at the Buckhead Theatre. Their Americana/bluegrass sound brings an old-time folk nostalgia to the stage. Their music combines elements of old country, rockabilly, bluegrass, gospel, and even a little touch of classic rock'n'roll. The group formed in 2007 as a just-for-kicks opportunity for longtime friends to get together and play songs they love. But what started out as just porch settin' and cover song-playing evolved organically over the years, through the word-of-mouth support of an ever-growing group of loyal fans, into one of the finest original bands in the Southeast, regularly selling out storied songwriting venues from Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA, to the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. Each band member takes turns with the lead vocal and contributes to both song and arrangement ideas. From the firecracker guitar playing of Linda Bolley to the delicate mandolin of Beth Wheeler, the propulsive bass of Lenny Lasater, to the lap steel and button box swells of the harp and guitar rhythms of Becky Shaw, Roxie Watson weaves a rich sound. Their three previous albums are "True Stories" (2010), "Of Milestones & Moon Pie" (2012) and "Songs From Hell's Hollow" (2014).
