About the event

Paul Givant was born and bred on the fringes of Los Angeles, shaped musically and spiritually by the valleys and hills of Southern California, its diverse extremes of culture and geography, and its edge-of-the-earth vibe as a mecca for lost souls and lonely hearts, wandering artists and wannabe mystics, folk heroes and rock-and-roll rebels.

Since 2006 Givant has helmed Rose's Pawn Shop, releasing 3 studio albums and touring relentlessly, growing a fan base drawn to its critically-acclaimed sound — a unique and soulful, energetic tangle of folk, Americana, rock, and punk roots, complex vocal harmonies, driving beats and heartache-forged lyrics.

After working with Grammy-winning producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Gaslight Anthem etc) on RPS’s third album Gravity Well and surviving more than a few dark nights of the soul on the far edges of downtown LA, Givant began to explore more deeply his own personal experiences and history, excavating the raw material that informs his debut solo album Fashion District Adjacent.

Givant’s songs are lyrically sharp, witty, intelligent, and wryly self-aware and his broad instrumental and stylistic versatility draw on elements from his past work and expand them, pushing and blending the boundaries of genre to make Fashion District Adjacent a uniquely personal but relatable chronicle of love and loss, survival through the end of one world and living on into the next.

Joining him is our resident violinist, Chris Murphy! "In another era, I would have played square dances, been a court musician, or a circus fiddler, and loved every minute of it,” says veteran LA violinist and songwriter Chris Murphy, whose spirited and haunting original music bends genres and even centuries with ease.

Murphy grew up in an Irish-Italian family near New York City, surrounded by the disparate sounds of his neighbors’ traditional music: Italian mandolin songs, pulsing Latin rhythms, and bracing Irish rounds. Eventually falling under the spell of late, great multi-instrumentalist David Lindley (Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder, Bob Dylan) Murphy went on to explore Turkish and Indian music at Bard College, and studied composition at Boston’s prestigious New England Conservatory of Music.

Since then, Murphy has hypnotized crowds in more than forty US states, done extensive tours of England, Belgium , and The Netherlands, and amassed a breathtakingly deep catalog of over 500 works. His over fifteen original albums—including 2023’s brilliant “The Road & the Stars”—boast A-list players from the Tom Waits band, Wilco, X, The Desert Rose Band, Elvis Costello, and the Buena Vista Social Club.

“To me, music is liquid,” Murphy explains thoughtfully. “I’ll twist and turn, and hammer and mold, and shape, cut, and paste the music to create a fresh experience for my audience at all costs.”

Opening the evening we welcome W. Earl Brown to the Cabin Creek stage for the first time! He is an accomplished actor, screenwriter, producer, musician, and songwriter. Brown writes and performs with the country music band Sacred Cowboys. Best known as an actor in film and television, Earl has been a life-long music fan. His earliest memory of the power of music was hearing Hank Williams on his grandmother’s record player. “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”, a recording so haunting that it could make a toddler mournful decades after its creation, left an indelible impression. When Earl was four, his family went to the county fair to see The Porter Wagoner Show with Dolly Parton. It was Earl’s first live show. It was also the first time he encountered folks he’d watched on television in person – it was an epiphany to realize they were normal, living, breathing, human beings. Going to the 1967 Calloway County Fair was the first step that would eventually lead to a career in show business. As a youngster tagging along with his mother, Earl sat in the audience for just about every major country music star of the period: Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Bill Monroe, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, and Tammy Wynette were just a few of the many shows he saw. Then puberty hit. Along with that rush of testosterone came a love for music that packed a wallop. If it was loud and angry, Earl loved it. Kiss, AC DC, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, The Ramones, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, -- those bands, and many more, had their logos festooned in hand-drawn ink on Earl’s high school notebooks. The music that defined him had no place for mandolins and steel guitars… or so he thought. It wasn’t until Earl moved away from his Kentucky home to pursue his show biz dreams that the two seemingly disparate musical forms came together. He was teaching himself to play guitar when he heard Chicago’s WXRT (a rock station) play Nashville artist, Steve Earle. “Copperhead Road” combined elements of hard rock and hard country and was written with a literate lyrical bent. The music eased his home sickness and exorcised his fear. Earl grew to love Twang. As an actor, Earl is best known for his roles as “Dan Dority” on HBO’s Deadwood, “Hugo Root” in AMC’s Preacher, “Warren” Cameron Diaz’s brother in There’s Something About Mary, and “Kenny” the unfortunate sidekick of Courtney Cox in the original Scream.
