So much of today’s music is informed by what came before. And all this year, we’re celebrating classic albums from 1972 with a new concert series titled Albums at 50.
It kicks off May 12 with the Baltimore Boom Bap Society re-interpreting Curtis Mayfield’s “Super Fly” – a top-to-bottom reimagining of this record, with rapping, beatboxing and more. The series continues June 30 with Marian McLaughlin and special guests performing Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon.” Both of these shows will be hosted at WTMD.
The biggest show in the series will be Ed Hough & Friends featuring John Ginty and Berry Duane Oakley (of the Allman Betts Band), Cris Jacobs, Bobby Thompson and Mike Gambone performing the Allman Brothers’ “Eat A Peach” album Sept. 9 at Power Plant Live.
Albums at 50 wraps up Sept. 23 with The Old Part of Town & special guests Pressing Strings, the Honey DewDrops & Anne Watts reinterpreting Neil Young’s “Harvest” at WTMD.
