Malpass Brothers

  • Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint

We're thrilled to welcome back the Malpass Brothers! These two tore the house down when they were here back in May. We're more than happy to welcome them back!

As young boys, Christopher and Taylor Malpass soaked up the music of their granddad’s phonograph records. Christopher earned his first talent show trophy at age 7, and Taylor was playing mandolin by the time he was 10. Today, they promote the work and music of classic country artists they treasure while creating new music and making their own mark in the lineage of a rich American cultural heritage.

With sincerity, honesty and an utter ease on stage that belies their years, their smooth vocal blend and skillful musicianship layer infectiously into the deep respect they pay to legends who have paved the way. Add the funny, off-the-cuff quips between the two 20-something siblings, and the engaging concert becomes a magnetic time-traveling journey to when a calmer rhythm reigned supreme.

The Malpass Brothers toured with the late Don Helms, former steel guitarist for Hank Williams, have opened for music legend Merle Haggard on multiple tours and appeared on stages from the Shetland Islands to Ryman Auditorium to Merlefest. Gifted musicians and songwriters, the brothers have shared billing with artists including Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Doyle Lawson, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, Doc Watson and more. The title cut video from their “Memory That Bad” album hit CMT Pure Country’s Top Ten. Their most recent self-titled recording, produced by bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson, was released by Crossroads’ Organic Records in 2015.

If you like cornbread & hush puppies, you’re gonna love the Malpass Brothers.  If you like sweet tea, barbecue & collards, you’re gonna love the Malpass Brothers.  If you like clean fresh air over a freshly-plowed field, if you like a great big ol’ corn puddin’ at a homecoming covered dish, you’re gonna love the Malpass Brothers.  That’s a promise.  (And you don’t lie about a covered dish supper.)

This is the real deal, folks. There is no pretense. This is music steeped in the legacy of the Louvin Brothers, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Sr. & others.  Count on classic, real country. Count on new Malpass tunes. Count on a couple of old-time traditional gospels. Count on their probably coming down into the house at intermission and asking what you’d like to hear.  Count on giggles and ribbing between brothers, along with daddy on the bass, who’s bound to be thinking, “What the hell are they doing now?” Count on some big, high man hair, and maybe an Elvis twitch or two. Count on lines at the CD table … and count on logging on to see where they’ll be next.

Matt Prater Band

  • Martin's BBQ Joint

Ten years, more than 1,000 live shows and three recording projects ago, Matt Prater wrote his first song. 

Prater, a singer songwriter, is the perfect blend of country, folk, and bluegrass that remains relevant to all generations.  Son to a cattle farmer in north Alabama, that had a passion for music, simple living, hard work, and were honest God fearing folk. It's no surprise that Matt draws upon his family and his upbringings as a source of inspiration for many of his songs. Matt has been surrounded by music and musicians his entire life, but only started writing and performing live in 2006.  

In 2010, he recorded his first album, "Small Town Son” followed by “The Mountain” in 2013. The albums arefilled with stories of family, poetry, humble beginnings, and Southern American tradition.  His music is real and authentic, its "Roots Run Deep."   

Following those successes he independently produced“Tables and Chairs.”  In Tables and Chairs, you really get to enjoy his storytelling genius abilities, especially in "The Barber," and "Bozeman." With heartfelt original music that has received great reviews from many industry professionals. Matt has been an opener for such acts as Shenandoah and The Henningsens. 

“A long, tall, cool drink of water with old school country in his veins. Storyteller of old!!” – Lucky Mud

The Alternate Root Magazine states “Picking up a guitar and learning to play is the easy part of songwriting. Stitching stories with a straightforward frankness and making it look easy is the tough part. Matt Prater aced both.” 

Matt is currently working on his next album scheduled to be released Spring 2017. Follow on Facebook, subscribe via Youtube and continue to check out the show updates here on the website. Matt performs a couple of shows weekly and is available for booking with a full band or solo acoustic.
