Columbus Arts Council &
Sunstroke House presents 

An Evening with Jimbo Mathus

The late Memphis producer Jim Dickinson once called Jimbo Mathus “the singing voice of Huck Finn.” Outside the South, Mathus is likely known as the ringleader of the hyper-ragtime outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers. In his native Mississippi and throughout the South, however, Mathus is the prolific songwriter of born-in-the-bone Southern music, the torchbearer for Deep South mythology and culture. Think Delta highways, bowling-pin Budweisers and “innerplanetary honky-tonk” for the masses.

Anse Rigby

Saturday, August 17

Influenced by 90’s country and alternative rock, Rigby has found a home in the singer/songwriter genre. Finding inspiration for his writing style from the likes of Dave Barnes, Ben Rector, Drew Holcomb, and Amos Lee, Anse has transformed the moments in his life into relatable substances of storytelling.

“I draw inspiration from people who need healing. I feel that music and storytelling are so powerful. It encourages others by reminding them that they are not alone in a certain situation. I try to base everything I write around love. The most important thing God has given and should shine out of us.” ~ Rigby
