The album was self-produced and recorded at Grace’s home — a.k.a “Tumbleweed Ranch,” a creaky, old, tin-roofed ranch house on 100 acres in Eads, TN, and features two co-writes with Mike Doughty (of ’90s cult band “Soul Coughing).

Crosstown Theater, 1350 Concourse Ave.

National film and television shows (like the Hallmark “Graceland” films & Bluff City Law) have caught on to what an incredible place Memphis is to make their work.  For the September Shoot & Splice, Sharon O’Guin (Deputy Film Commissioner for the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission) will talk about the hard work the Commission is doing behind the scenes to both bring national level productions to Memphis and assist local  film and television professionals.  Then hear some on-set experiences from some very talented Memphians, including Kevin Brooks, Kerri Mahoney and Jil Szewski – all three currently working on Bluff City Law.  

Shoot & Splice is a monthly filmmaker forum presented collaboratively by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts.

The Orrin Evans Trio at The Green Room

Crosstown Arts, The Green Room, 1350 Concourse Ave., Suite 280
Memphis, TN 38104 United States

Join us in The Green Room for a performance by jazz pianist Orrin Evans.

Many may know Orrin Evans as the pianist for Jazz juggernauts The Bad Plus. But with more than 25 albums to his credit, without ever relying on the support of a major label, Evans has become the model of a fiercely independent artist who’s made a habit of rattling the jazz world’s confining cages. That determination has paid off in accolades like topping the “Rising Star Pianist” category in the 2018 DownBeat Critics Poll.
