Rachael Shaner is a staple of the Savannah music scene, and after years of playing with others, she’s releasing an album of all-original material as Lulu the Giant.
Kingdom’s Fall is a peek into Shaner’s musical past and future. It’s an album that’s steeped in tradition but lovingly breaks all the rules.
Rachael Shaner unveils her debut album as Lulu The Giant at Trinity UMCOne moment, she’s whisking her audience away in an Americana-style story-song; another, she’s pared down to the bare essentials for a sultry R&B-tinged ballad.
Shaner, joined by drummer Daniel Malone and guitarist Alex Bazemore, releases her debut LP at Trinity UMC on Thursday. We sat down with the singer-songwriter to learn more about her origins and big breakout moment.
A four-man string band based in Buenos Aires with members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States. The group’s founder is Joe Troop (fiddle), a North Carolinian multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer who moved to Argentina in 2010. While patiently carving out a niche in the local music scene, Joe taught bluegrass and old-time music for a living. That’s how he met Pau Barjau (banjo), Franco Martino (guitar) and Martin Bobrik (mandolin), his most dedicated students. They quickly became picking buddies and in 2013 decided to hit the stage.
Che Apalache began as a bluegrass band, but eventually incorporated Latin American styles into their repertoire. Combining instrumental prowess with tight vocal harmonies, they have created an authentic blend of genres to reflect the nature of their lives. Evoking images from Appalachia to the Andes, their debut album, “Latingrass,” is a testament to a powerful cultural and musical exchange.
