Molly Thomas has always been a child of the water, and metaphors of flow, movement, tidal change and bodily connection frequently surface in her lyrics. Born in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, Thomas has made her home in and cultivated many of her musical influences from the southern regions of Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. Thomas' current album, "Honey's Fury," is her first with her touring band The Rare Birds.
Johnny Sansone is an American electric blues singer, songwriter, harmonicist, accordionist, guitarist and piano player. His musical career began at the age of 8, and he has been developing his skills ever since. Sansone led the life of an itinerant bluesman, traveling around the country from temporary bases in Colorado, Austin, Florida and Chicago before settling down in New Orleans in 1990. Living in New Orleans brought a swamp rock tinge to his gruff vocals and emotional playing style. In his music, he combines blues, boogie and the front porch Cajun and Zydeco sounds of the Louisiana Bayou Country.
Music at Meyer Park concerts are rain or shine events. In the event of rain, the backup location will be Big Beach Brewery.
