John Calvin Abney

Saturday 5/19

Blue Door

One of OKC's most beloved troubadours, fresh off a tour with John Moreland to much national acclaim, in an intimate solo show at Blue Door. Abney's new LP, Coyote, drops Friday 5/19. This intimate and sure-to-be-special show is supported by an appearance by Samantha Crain, also one of our city's most gifted songwriters and musicians.

Here's some early press for Coyote (which you can buy here):

"Abney’s brand of Americana isn’t deeply rooted in country tinged crooners or twang. Rather, Abney's delievers soft and elegant moments reminiscent of Beck’s Sea Change, Ryan Adams‘ 29 and Elliott Smith’s Either/Or." - Wide Open Country

"Abney’s voice carries a world-weary sadness while simultaneously exuding optimism." - Glide Magazine

"9 out of 10...Abney is like a modern day Romantic poet, Wordsworth perhaps, (or Lord Byron – mad, bad and dangerous to know?) ... one of Oklahoma's finest comes up with the goods!" - Americana UK

This one goes on the cal in bold.

8 pm. $20. Blue Door, 2805 N. McKinley Ave. Ticket info here.
