Nash Street to perform at Sucarnochee Revue

Nash Street traces its musical roots all the way back to grade school, way before bluegrass became “cool” again, when a public school teacher in Starkville organized promising music students into a folk string band.

Some of the faces have changed over the years, and the band’s style has matured as new members folded their strengths into the mix. But over the years, Nash Street worked its way up to larger and more prominent venues – ultimately winning the 2008 Colgate Country Showdown at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

East Mississippi Community College will welcome the “Best New Act in Country Music” to the Lyceum auditorium on Friday, May 29, at 7 p.m. when Nash Street headlines a visit by the Sucarnochee Revue.

“The Sucarnochee Revue has performed for the last couple of years at EMCC’s Scooba campus, and we thought it was time to invite them to perform up in the northern end of the district,” said Dr. Paul Miller, vice president of EMCC’s Golden Triangle campus.

“The Revue’s line-up has something for everyone’s musical tastes. Beyond that, it gives people a chance to see a little bit of our campus – and proceeds from the concert will go toward EMCC’s tuition guarantee program, which enables qualifying students to attend EMCC tuition-free. To top it all off, one of the members of Nash Street, Jason Graham, is the son of Grady Graham, who teaches automotive technology here at EMCC, so we’re excited about that, too.”
