Memphis Acoustic Music Association (MAMA) will be presenting Spencer Bohren at 8pm on Saturday, September 11, at Otherlands Coffee Bar located at 641 Cooper. Spencer Bohren’s music resonates with the ambience of the rivers, roads, and bayous of the American South. He has a marvelous gift for sharing his great love for America’s traditional folk, blues, gospel, and country music with audiences of all ages. His ability to animate the musicians and singers of the past, with both respectful readings of their music and spellbinding stories, is legendary. Spencer’s laid-back stage presence and comfortable delivery make each concert feel like a pleasant visit with an old friend.
Since he last performed in Memphis, Spencer has released his latest CD, Live at the Tube Temple, recorded in Solingen, Germany, and earning rave reviews. In addition to an active concert schedule, he continues to host guitar workshops across the country, and he regularly performs his Down the Dirt Road Blues show to educate audiences at schools, universities, and museums about the shared history of blues and rock music. For this work Spencer received the Keeping the Blues Alive in Education award from the Blues Foundation this year.
