Nashville Legacy

Friday January 11, 2019 at 7:30pm

Floyd Cramer and Chet Atkins. Two legends at their instruments, two giants in the music industry. FLOYD CRAMER’s unique “slip note” piano style was an essential part of countless country, pop, and rock hits in the 1950s and ‘60s. Exemplified by his 1960 smash hit, “Last Date,” Floyd’s distinctive touch is instantly identifiable and is widely regarded as the standard for country piano.

CHET ATKINS is known as one of the world’s preeminent guitar virtuosos and most prolific record producers. His innovative thumb-and-two-finger style brought him unparalleled success as a guitarist, and many of the records he produced for RCA have become classics.

The two have each been inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Country Music Halls of Fame, and their names have become synonymous with the “Nashville Sound” they pioneered as well as their unique methods of playing the piano and guitar. And though they both lost their lives to cancer – Floyd in 1997 and Chet in 2001 – their Nashville Legacy lives on through Floyd’s grandson, pianist Jason Coleman, and Chet’s niece, guitarist Meagan Taylor.
