We had a blast in Nashville in September as Catfish Concerts proudly presented our first show in Nashville on September 21 with James McMurtry and Steve Poltz during the annual Americana Music Association festival! The two incredible singer-songwriters performed as a part of Jenni and Brian’s event to celebrate their new book Kent Finlay, Dreamer: The Legacy behind Cheatham Street Warehouse at City Winery. Big thanks for everyone who came out to our sold out event!

Now, check out a few videos from our impromptu Merle Haggard tribute on April 9 featuring Kevin Russell, Randy Weeks, Noel McKay, Jenni and Sterling Finlay and Graham Weber (many more videos on You Tube – search ‘Catfish Concerts Merle’):

“The cool thing about Catfish Concerts is that it really has the feel of when I was a kid in South Austin, except you guys are way too calm and take it way to seriously.”                             – John Townes Van Zandt II

“Catfish Concerts is among the most intimate, friendly, inspired and inspirational house concerts in the country and most likely the world. It’s like hanging out with your favorite folks in a treehouse built by your favorite uncle, the one who paints and write poems all day. I’ll tell you what I think Catfish is: a genuine piece of heaven that you can touch with your hands while you drink good local beer and listen to great songs.  Thank you, Jenni and Brian, for creating such a space and event.” – Walt Wilkins
