The John Butler Trio are a curious case as a band. They’re set up like a traditional power trio, but the music that they play couldn’t be further removed from what you’d expect from a power trio. Under Butler’s guidance, the trio are loose, raucous, and almost unhinged. One listens to the band expecting them to fall apart at any minute, but they keep it together each and every time. It’s as if the power of Butler’s songs holds the band up. This month, Butler is bringing his live power to Nashville, where people tend to know a thing or two about good music. Catch him at the hallowed halls of the Ryman Auditorium. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Ryman’s website.
