The WDVX Blue Plate Special live from Visit Knoxville – 2/24 – River Tramps / Michael Flynn

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Navigation

Michael Flynn is a singer/songwriter most often found yodeling his way through the hills of Saluda NC. His songs have been featured on shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Shameless, and on commercials for useful products like cars and shampoo.

THE RIVER TRAMPS CREATE EVOCATIVE MELODIES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU NEED A COLD DRINK, ‘SPECIALLY A SWEATING BEER IN THE HEAT OF SUMMERTIME. THAT FIRST REFRESHING SIP COMES IN THE FORM OF ADAM AND NIKO’S EARTHY, AND DEEPLY PASSIONATE VOCAL QUALITY. THEY SPIN LYRICS AND MELODIES THAT CUT LIKE A CHISEL TO THE WOOD ON A LATHE.

WITH A SOUND THAT HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FOLK, BEACH GOTH, AND DESERT ROCK THE DUO HAS IMPLEMENTED THE BEST OF THEIR FAMILIAL ROOTED AREAS OF INFLUENCE; RIO, IMMERSED IN TRADITIONAL CLASSIC MEXICAN STYLE FOLK, AND ADAM, A CLASSIC ROCK JUNKIE WITH A COMBINED LOVE FOR 90’S COUNTRY, THE TWO SHARE A BIG LOVE FOR MOUNTAIN MUSIC WHICH HAS BEEN KEY TO KEEPING THEIR MUSICAL NARRATIVE ON TRACK.

HAVING PERFORMED WITH THE LIKES OF FELLOW TEXAN AND GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING, RADNEY FOSTER, GRAMMY-NOMINATED FEMALE SUPERGROUP THE KRICKETS, AND ALONGSIDE JOHN PAUL WHITE FROM THE FORMER DUO, THE CIVIL WARS RIVER TRAMPS CONTINUE TO FINE-TUNE AND EXPERIMENT WITH THE CHALLENGES OF PERFORMING AS A TWO-SOME.

FOLLOWING THEIR LATEST RELEASE, MARE AND THE MAIDEN, RIVER TRAMPS ARE SET TO GET BACK IN THE SADDLE IN THE SUMMER OF 2021.
