Great Music in Baton Rouge!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I’ve written before about one of the most unique music venues in America, The Red Dragon Listening Room.  And that’s exactly what the place is.  No drinks or food.  Nothing for sale.  Just listening to some first rate musical groups.  I’m a regular, and owner Chris Maxwell knows to hold me a sea up front.  I was in that number this past Friday night to hear Keith Sykes and Sara Jean Kelley.  Singer/songwriter Keith Sykes first surfaced in 1969 with a self-titled LP on Vanguard, followed a year later by 1 2 3; out of the limelight throughout much of the early 1970s, he resurfaced later in the decade playing guitar in Jimmy Buffett’s touring band.  He is a prolific song writer based out of Nashville.  Also on the program was   Nashville born singer and songwriter Sara Jean Kelley, who delivers a mixture of traditional country, bluegrass and blues with modern Americana; sultry vocals, and haunting lyrics all played on a classic 1969 Gibson B25.  You can view both performers below.
