Guitar Legend Bill Kirchen at The Depot Brewery Thu Nov 3rd


Bill KirchenInterview airs Tue Nov 1st at 7am CT

Indy Week calls him "one of the best guitarists in the land". Vintage Guitar Magazine labels him "an American classic." British rocker Nick Lowe says, "He is one of the singular instrumental stylists of American roots music. To hear his sound once is to have it indelibly etched on your musical memory." The Man in Black, Johnny Cash, put it simply: "I think he's great."

 

Grammy-nominated Titan of the Telecaster Blll Kirchen, co-founder of the original Kirchen, on the far right, with Commander Cody“Americana” band, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen, will be in Fairfield for one show only at the Depot Brewery on Thursday, November 3rd at 8pm. His guitar licks propelled Commander Cody's hit “Hot Rod Lincoln” into the Top 10 back in 1072 and he's been blazing away ever since. His latest release "Transatlanticana" came out in August.

 

Kirchen is no stranger to Fairfield but this will be his first time playing the Depot Brewery, an artisan juke joint with a killer sound system and spacious dance floor perfectly suited to his twang-a-billy rock'n'roll sensibilities. Bill grew up in Michigan where he graduated same year, same class from Ann Arbor High School as one James Newell Osterberg, Jr., otherwise known as Iggy Pop. Kirchen relates: “I first saw Bob Dylan at my high school in Ann Arbor in ’63, then Newport Folk Festival in ’64 where he debuted ‘Mr. Tambourine Man.’ I went to Newport the next year and saw him ‘go electric’. I loved it. What I saw those two years at Newport, and all the wild music that came through Ann Arbor and Detroit pretty much ruined me for normal work.”

A founding father of Americana, Bill's fun-loving, devil may care, go for broke musicality is always entertaining. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 day of show. Available now at the Depot Brewery or by credit card at 641 469-6959 during working hours.
