02/28/2012 ACEF Unveils Line-up for Logan Pharmacy Stage – The Kentucky Headhunters to Headline 2012 Event

leave a comment »

Moulton, Ala. – American country rock band The Kentucky Headhunters will headline the eighth annual Alabama Chicken and Egg Festival set for April 13-15, 2012. North Alabama’s popular spring festival also features eleven additional bands and performers on the Logan Pharmacy Stage bringing to Moulton an assortment of local and regional talent for three days of wholesome entertainment.

The festival kicks off on Friday evening, April 13th with live music, a variety of good eats, and a VIP Bike Night for motorcycle enthusiasts. Gates open at 5 p.m. with live music featuring Russell Gulley (www.russellgulley.com) firing up at 5:30 p.m. As a veteran Muscle Shoals songwriter and musician, Russell Gulley was one of the founding members of Jackson Highway, a classic southern rock band during the 1970s.

Following at 7 p.m. is Mia Borders (www.miaborders.com). Mia Borders has captured the attention of both local and national audiences with her energetic blend of funk, soul, and contemporary songwriting. The April 2010 release of her second full-length album, “Magnolia Blue,” earned her a nomination for Best Emerging Artist at the Big Easy Music Awards, as well as a nationally broadcast performance at N.O. Jazz Fest ’10.

Hailing from Louisiana, Voodoo Bayou (www.boodoobayouband.com) brings with them a mix of Americana rock, Delta blues and funk fusion promising nothing less than a high-energy show. Their 1 ½-hour performance is slated for 8:30 p.m. on Friday evening.

Music fills the air Saturday, April 14th beginning at 11 a.m. with the Barren River Trio (www.barrenrivertrio.com). Formed in 2010, Saturday’s opening act is centered on strong American values such as freedom, family, personal quality, innovation, and hard work. Their debut album, “American Folk,” is a collection of stories aimed to remind and encourage folks to remember what it means to be an American.

Eleven months after being formed, the Ray Johnston Band (www.rayjohnstonband.com) found themselves opening for Cheap Trick at SXSW in Austin, Tex., the largest weeklong music and media event in the country where promising new bands play alongside established performers. Born in Montgomery, Ray played basketball for the University of Alabama and was playing for the Dallas Mavericks in 2004 before a diagnosis of leukemia forced a career change. Set to perform at 1 p.m., the band features both gentle melodies and explosions of funk, blues and jazz.

Storyteller, songwriter, guitarist, and vocal instrumentalist Lawrence “Lipbone” Redding (www.lipbone.com) has spent the last 20 years traveling the world collecting and recounting exotic tales through music and performance art. With humble beginnings as a New York City subway singer, Lipbone now performs in festivals, theaters and concert halls across America and Europe. Lipbone Redding and The Lipbone Orchestra take to the stage at 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Following at 6:30 p.m., southern rock band Black Oak Arkansas (www.facebook.com/pages/Black-Oak-Arkansas/118586411537485) has been around since the early 70s, playing a unique sound of Southern boogie mixed with low, growling vocals by the group’s lead singer. They have released many albums and have had several chart-topping songs including “Keep the Faith,” “Hot and Nasty,” and “Uncle Lijah,” but they are probably best known for their 1973 hit “Jim Dandy” which happens to be the name of the lead singer, Jim “Dandy” Mangrum.

Founded in 1968 as Itchy Brother, the name change to The Kentucky Headhunters (www.kentuckyheadhunters.com) came in 1986 with a change in band members, and since then the country rock band has charted four consecutive Top 40 country singles from its debut album Pickin’ on Nashville. The band has released seven studio albums, two compilations, and twenty singles of which “Oh Lonesome Me” peaked at #8 in 1990. In addition, they have won three Country Music Association awards, an Academy of Country Music award and a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1990 for Pickin’ on Nashville. Their 1 ½-hour performance is set for 8:30 p.m.

Sunday, April 15th features Delta Reign, Cedric Burnside, Lightin’ Malcolm, and Honey Island Swamp Band. Hailing from Mobile, Delta Reign (www.deltareign.com) brings a touch of bluegrass to the Logan Pharmacy Stage beginning at 11 a.m. With favorable reviews in Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Music Profiles magazines, this “delta bluegrass” band is ready to make their mark in the world of bluegrass.

Grandson of North Mississippi Blues legend R.L. Burnside, Cedric Burnside (www.cedricburnside.com) was the winner of the Memphis Blues Music Award “Best New Artist Debut” in 2009 and was named its “Drummer of the Year” in 2010. He recently started a new band, Cedric Burnside and the Cedric Burnside Project, and their debut album is titled “The Way I Am” featuring original foot-stomping hill country blues music. They are set to perform at 1 p.m.

Following at 2:30 p.m. is Lightnin’ Malcolm (www.lightninmalcolm.net). His latest album, “Renegade,” is high energy, hill country blues fused with modern elements of funk, reggae, soul, and rock. It features 13 new original songs all written and produced by Lightnin’ Malcolm.

The final act for the three-day event is Honey Island Swamp Band (www.honeyislandswampband.com). Named after a real place along the borders of Louisiana and Mississippi, this band is a blend of soul, country, R&B, and blues with their music described as “Bayou Americana”.

Following their performance on stage, bands will move to the WALW tent to meet with fans and give autographs. Band items, including CDs, t-shirts, and posters, will be available to purchase.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at Jamie Hood Jewelers located at 2504 East Avalon Avenue, Suite A in Muscle Shoals, Ala. Admission to the Festival is $3 daily/per person and children five years old and under are admitted free. The price of admission includes the above mentioned entertainment and concerts on all three stages throughout the three-day event. Festival goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets.
