Raleigh, NC (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Marianne Taylor, a promoter of Roots music in Raleigh, North Carolina will be moving her shows primarily to The Berkeley Cafe after Hideaway BBQ closes its doors on January 19. Don Dixon's show on January 26 will be moved to The Lincoln Theatre.
Hideaway BBQ enjoyed a 15-month run as one of the premier Roots music venues in the US, before the economics of additionally running a restaurant, caused its closing. While it was open, Hideaway played host to some on the top Roots artists in the country, including Southern Culture On The Skids, The Waybacks, Billy Joe Shaver, Dale Watson, The Gourds, Wayne Hancock, The Duhks, Marshall Crenshaw, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Scott Miller & The Commonwealth, Jason Isbell, Ian McLagan, Don Dixon, and dozens of others. A more complete list of the Hideaway's show can be found on their My Space page. The last two weeks' shows include Enter The Haggis, Mike Farris, and Delta Moon.
January 25's show with Wayne "The Train" Hancock will be the first of Taylor's shows to be held at The Berkeley Cafe, the oldest continuously running music venue in Raleigh, having enjoyed 27 years in the same location. With a state-of-the-art sound and light system, a capacity of 300, and a cool funky vibe, Taylor feels that The Berkeley Cafe will be the perfect home to the Roots shows for which she is so passionate. Since the agreement was struck with The Berkeley's Jim Shires, Taylor has booked more Roots shows to go into the room and will continue to do so.
