Martha Scanlan, with the Changing Colors, the Genuwines

When: Sat., May 15 2010

After her old-time string band, the Reeltime Travelers, was chosen by T Bone Burnett to appear on the soundtrack for Cold Mountain, Martha Scanlan toured with Ralph Stanley and Alison Krauss, expanding her following among traditional folk and bluegrass fans. Scanlan's subsequent solo album, recorded in Levon Helm's barn studio (the legendary Band drummer also appears on the record) is a strong showcase for the Tennessee artist's poignant yet powerful songwriting. Catch her at 7 tonight at theLoft (2501 West Colorado Ave., #301, myspace.com/theloft719) for $20. The Genuwines open. — Bill Forman
