EdenSong becomes "ArtSong" with move to Cincinnati Art Museum
EdenSong, the long-running summer concert series presented by the Queen City Balladeers, kicks off this Friday in Eden Park, but not in its usual outdoor spot at the Seasongood Pavilion. For the 2013 series, EdenSong is moving just up the hill and indoors — inside the Cincinnati Art Museum, to be exact. The series — now dubbed ArtSong — runs every Friday through Aug. 2 and, as usual, features an excellent collection of primarily local Americana/Roots music performers. The concerts will take place in the museum’s Fath Auditorium. Seating is more limited, so organizers advise arriving earlier than the 8 p.m. start time. Attendees are asked to enter the museum’s Dewitt entrance on the side of the building, in lieu of using the front doors. The EdenSong concerts remain free (donations are, of course, welcome) and there is free parking on the museum grounds. This Friday's opening concert features the impressive lineup of Shiny & the Spoon, Ma Crow & the Lady Slippers, Lisa Biales, Anachrorhythms and Bob Kotz. For the July 19 show, you can catch Ricky Nye, Wild Carrot & the Roots Band, Jim’s Red Pants, Steve Bonafel & One Iota and Ellie Fabe. The lineup for July 26 features Anna & Milovan, Red Cedars, Silver Arm, Greg Schaber and Calamity Rain. And for the Aug. 2 closer, you'll be able to see/hear The Rattlesnakin' Daddies, Bromwell-Diehl Band, the Hertz Brothers, Ann & Phil Case and John Ford.For more info, visit queencityballadeers.org.

Though rootsier acoustic music seems to
be almost trendy now (it’s a “fad” that seems to come around every 15
years or so), the local
organization Queen City Balladeers has been celebrating and nurturing
Folk and Americana music for decades in the Queen City. Next year will
mark the Balladeers’ 50th anniversary; this Friday, the 49th annual EdenSong concert series returns to Eden Park.

While you're waiting for nostalgia for the '00s to kick in (remember that crazy Kanye West dude?), you can dip back to the 1990s Friday as several local musicians team up at The Mad Hatter for a musical tribute to the era that saw Hair Metal murdered by Grunge. The show is headlined by (presumably one-off) local supergroup tribute bands The Neverminds (Nirvana tribute), Butthole Son (Soundgarden), Hung Bunny (Melvins) and Bossarosa (Pixies).
