Will Kimbrough

Last night I had the pleasure to catch a live performance by singer songwriter Will Kimbrough in a living room in Dorsey’s Search. My buddy Steve Tove hosted the performance and opened his home to about 80 people. Steve introduced me to his music a few years back when he promoted a small concert with Kimbrough and Todd Snider at the old Last Chance Saloon in the Oakland Mills Village Center.

He’s kept in touch since and I believe this is the second time the artist from Alabama’s Gulf Coast has played in Steve and Wendy’s living room.

This is a great way to enjoy live music too. People bought covered dishes and deserts and Steve provided drinks. A bucket was passed for the artist after the first set.

It’s also interesting to note that Steve is about as Columbia as anyone can possibly be. His name is even enshrined on a plaque at the Columbia lakefront honoring that first group of kids that went all the way from kindergarten to high school in Columbia.
