City Slang: Some Velvet Evening set to release new album



Dynamic honky tonk duo Some Velvet Evening, consisting of Carrie Shepard and John Holk, celebrate the release of their debut album, No Law Against Talking with a CD release show on September 13 at Oak City Grille.

As they say themselves on a press release, “Masters of twang, melancholy and harmony, their original tunes harken back to the high lonesome crooners of yesteryear in the tradition of the Louvin Brothers, Wagoner/Parton, Twitty/Lynn and Parsons/Harris. For the past three years they have been local favorites on the Detroit honky tonk scene, with their special take on close harmony duets in the vintage country and western style.

As well as that CD release show, Some Velvet Evening also play the Lagerhouse on September 18, Birmingham Farmer’s Market on October 9, and the Crazy Wisdom Tea Room on October 14. Get out there for a rootin’, tootin’ good time.
