Kory Quinn Returns for Midwest Shows

by @thoughtontracks

Butler University grad and Portland, OR resident Kory Quinn is returning to the Midwest to retrace the steps where he cut his teeth a few years back. Quinn is currently on the road with his backing band The Comrades. He fronts the four man outfit that specializes in the type of new grass, Americana that has remained a constant across this region for decades. Think a less sappy Old Crow Medicine Show, without the fiddle.

Last summer, Quinn released a nine track LP entitled Waitin’ for a Train. The album was recorded during a two week stint on a cross-country train tour. Quinn and the Comrades will be playing a sold out show tonight at Hideout in Chicago. Watch a recent video during a visit to Park City’s KPCW below. The video features Quinn in collaboration with his pals from Bitterroot under the alias The Low Down Whiskey Rebels.  He will be playing Indianapolis’ The Melody Inn on January 19th along with Mark Alexander and Cincinnati’s Young Heirlooms. The venue holds sentimental value, as it was the first place the artist ever had a gig. Tickets are $5. Visit Do317 for the details.
