Ham Jam House -Concert
Melissa Carper along with Sad Daddy will play a fine acoustic concert on Friday, January 22nd, 2016, at 7:00 PM.
Melissa Carper, a member of Austin's much-loved Carper Family Band, is an amazing writer, bassist, and vocalist. If you ever heard the Carper Family Band play you
will be delighted to hear her again with her newest Arkansas collaboration, the
talented band, Sad Daddy. Melissa has new songs in her bag to show us, as well
as her new CD, "Arkansas Bound".
Sad Daddy began as the meeting of three musical minds -- Brian Martin (guitar),
Melissa Carper (bass), and Joe Sundell (banjo). The dynamic songwriting of the
original three members carried the group's 2010 self-titled release and won
them a loyal following in and around the great state of Arkansas. However,
with Carper and Sundell residing in Austin, TX and Martin far away in Ozark
country the group's opportunities for collaboration and performance were few
and far between.
Now with the original members all back in Arkansas as well as the addition of
standout fidller Rebecca Patek (violin), Sad Daddy is embarking on
the next chapter of their musical journey, with a follow up album in the
works and a full schedule of tour dates to go with. While Sad Daddy's
musicianship and stagecraft are worthy of mention, the songwriting of
Martin, Carper, and Sundell, remains the cornerstone of the group's allure
and allows them to connect with a wide range of audiences.
Sad Daddy will be recording their long anticipated 2nd album while in
Austin during January.
