Our final ACMA Alliance show of the season will feature Charlie McCoy, Roy Schneider and Kim Mayfield as Songwriters in the Round.
Any musician in Nashville has heard of Charlie McCoy. A mainstay in Music City since the ’60s, Charlie has played on dozens of hit records, including work with such legends as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Simon and Garfunkel, George Jones, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and many more. The solo work of this Country Music Hall of Fame member is contained on more than three dozen albums that Charlie has released over the past four decades. Sharing the stage with Charlie are Roy Schneider and Kim Mayfield.
Reckless Saints founder Roy Schneider was 16 and in hiding when a friend loaned him a guitar. He had just broken out of a Straight, Inc. facility after a horrific year-long incarceration, where he had been denied the right to play an instrument or even listen to music. Having access to a guitar again – as well as the support of good friends – helped him survive while he waited to turn 18 and begin his lifelong love affair with making music. Schneider went on to pursue visual arts, learning how to design toys in 3D, and writing and drawing the syndicated comic strip “The Humble Stumble” through United Media. Kim is better known as half of the Americana duo Roy Schneider & Kim Mayfield (now called Reckless Saints.) Reviewers have described her music as ‘pearly and sashaying,’ ‘pleasantly invoking the legendary Tammy Wynette,’ and ‘haunted by Patsy Cline.’ Mayfield’s song, Ring Around the Moon, made her a semi-finalist in the 2019 International Songwriting Competition.
Pre-sale seating is limited to 132 and is first come, first serve. In the case of bad weather, the show will be moved indoors to the Foulds Theatre. Additional tickets may be available at the door, weather permitting.
