Nashville Legacy: The Music of Floyd Cramer, Chet Atkins and The Nashville Sound
Featuring Jason Coleman, Floyd’s grandson, & Meagan Taylor, Chet’s niece.
Floyd Cramer and Chet Atkins. Two legends at their instruments, two giants in the music industry. Floyd Cramer’s unique “slip note” piano style was an essential part of countless country, pop, and rock hits in the 1950s and ‘60s and is widely regarded as the standard for country piano. Chet Atkins' innovative thumb-and-two-finger guitar style led him to become known as one of the world's preeminent guitar virtuosos, and many of the records he produced for RCA have become classics.
Though Floyd and Chet have passed away, their Nashville Legacy lives on through Floyd’s grandson, pianist Jason Coleman, and Chet’s niece, guitarist Meagan Taylor. In this concert, Jason and Meagan bring new life to the “Nashville Sound” pioneered by their legendary forerunners by playing songs like Floyd’s “Last Date” on piano and Chet’s “Freight Train” on guitar, as well as by singing the music of timeless artists like Patsy Cline, the Everly Brothers and Elvis Presley, all of whose careers were impacted by Floyd and Chet.
