take to the Shryock stage at 7:30 p.m. for an special bluegrass Christmas treat. The duo will perform a mixture of its original material and classic yuletide carols. Fans of “America’s Got Talent” may recognize Traces, New York’s acclaimed groundbreaking circus, from the group’s appearance on that competition-based television series. The program blends circus traditions with elements of street performances. The act was named one of Time Magazine’s “Top Ten of the Year.” The show comes to Shryock at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17. The show goes to the dogs on Sunday, April 7, when the Extreme Canine Stunt Dog Experience comes to Shryock for perform-

The five-show series concludes with five-time Tony Award-nominated musical “Rock of Ages” on Monday, April 22. The feelgood love story is told through the hits of bands like Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner and others. The show was recently adapted into a Hollywood blockbuster that opened this summer. Other events may be added through the year but are not included in this subscription package. adam.testa@thesouthern.com 618-351-5031

Presentation to focus on Native American rock art MAKANDA — Hidden away throughout the Shawnee National Forest are remnants of Southern Illinois’ past. Native Americans who once occupied the region have left behind a number of items telling their stories. Among the lasting messages from these early natives are rock paintings and carvings, telling the

stories of their time. Mark Wagner, interim director of the Center for Archeological Investigations at SIU, will talk about these markings and more when he presents “Petroglyphs and Pictographs: Rock Art of Southern Illinois” at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at the Giant City State Park Visitors Center, 235 Giant

City Road. Wagner has a strong interest in Native American rock art sites focused around the belief that these sites represent largely untapped sources of information regarding prehistoric Native American spirituality and religious beliefs. — Adam Testa

Open air art competition returning to Ste. Genevieve STE. GENEVIEVE, Mo. — Regionalist painters who called this small Missouri town home in the early- to mid-20th century would frequently paint “en plein air.” The art of painting in open air is designed to allow the artists to absorb the sights, sounds and feel of the outdoor scenes around them. The roots of the practice are found in the work of artists such as John Constable and Francois Millet and affected their successors like Claude Monet, Edouard Manet and Edgar Degas. The practice comes to life once again later this month, as the Ste. Genevieve Downtown Renewal Group sponsors the 2012 Plein Art Painting Competition, open to all artists in the region. This year’s competition includes a variety of paint-outs at historic sites and private residences in town and the country. This will also be the first year for a field-to-finish competition, and

David Lee Murphy — writing hits for the biggest stars every 2012 concert appearance, must be excited about the potential of the new album. So is Herrin native David Lee Murphy, who wrote a pair of tunes for the project, including the highly anticipated “The Only Way I Know” and “Walking Away.” “You feel good when the artist tells you a song you wrote is going to be on the next album. However, there is always a chance at the last minute they will find a song they like better and you get knocked out,” he said. “I’ve learned after a long time in this business that it’s best to take a lowkeyed approach and not get too excited until you are holding the new CD in your hand and see your name on

Page 8 Thursday, September 13, 2012 FLIPSIDE

it. Then you know it’s real.” Murphy never brags about the mind-blowing list on contacts developed in a career that has spanned four decades in Music City. He wasn’t even going to mention a marathon writing session he had with Keith Urban, another CMA Male Vocalist of the Year nominee for 2012, until the Australian megastar tweeted to the world about the event. “I’ve known Keith for a long time, since he was in a band in the late 90s called The Ranch. No one knew who he was back then, except he played a pretty mean guitar,” Murphy said. “We wrote a song together called ‘I Won’t be Sorry.’ He went in the studio and cut the song on Sept. 6 and was

pretty excited about the results, so he tweeted about it, which is pretty cool.” Again, Murphy says there are many enormous obstacles “I Won’t Be Sorry” must clear before it is played on local radio. “You never know how many songs Keith is going to put on an album. He will have full-studio production on at least 20 songs, then you have to survive the process when they start cutting it down to the very best. Making it on an album is hard; getting a single release is a lot more difficult,” he said. The 53-year old Murphy is a 1977 graduate of Herrin High School. While attending SIU Carbondale, he worked as a disc jockey at his hometown radio

station WJPF. Murphy migrated to Nashville in 1983 and labored in virtual obscurity for a decade, penning minor tunes for Reba McEntire and Doug Stone, before signing with MCA and hitting it big in 1995 with the lethal one-two punch of “Party Crowd” and “Dust on the Bottle,” which topped the Billboard charts for two weeks. Local fans will have a special opportunity to see Murphy in concert as part of the Paintin’ the Town Tour with Darryl Worley and Bo Bice on the opening day of the Rowdy Ridge Music Fest on Sept. 21-22 in Sturgis, Ky. Gates open at Rowdy Ridge at 5 p.m. on Sept. 21 and the schedule includes:

MURPHYSBORO — “Lil’” Ed Williams didn’t have to look far to find a role model. Growing up in Chicago, he had a direct bloodline to a musical legend, an

inspiration for channeling his inner soul and turning it into the sounds of the blues. Williams’ uncle, J.B. Hutto, had forged a path in the genre and secured his place in the city’s musical legacy. And a young Williams was the beneficiary of his uncle’s knowledge and experience. “He didn’t get a chance to teach me what I know now, but he got me started,” he said. Williams began playing music at age 12 — before he was even a teenager — and used that foundation to build a career that has lasted more than four decades. Along the way, he met three friends, and they’ve been kicking it together ever since. Paired with bassist James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton, Williams has toured the world performing as Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials. The band has performed in locations from Turkey to Tokyo. “It’s a little different feel; people take to the music a little differently,” he said of playing in front of diverse crowds, from Chicago to Memphis and Japan to Europe. “They still love it; it’s just a different feel.” The band is now headed back to Southern Illinois for the revitalized Riverside Blues Festival on Saturday, Sept. 22, at Riverside Park. Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials will be joined by other musicians, including Jessica Jo Jolly, The Mud Sills, King Juba,

Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials will perform at the Riverside Blues Festival on Sept. 22 at Riverside Park in Murphysboro.

Ivas John Band, Lew Jetton and 61 South and Tawl Paul and Slappin’ Henry Blue. While the band has played at different locales throughout the region, Williams is excited to play the festival and makes his promise very clear. “It’s going to be fun,” he said. “I always have fun. If we have some true blues lovers down there, it’s going to be a good time.” The festival, sponsored by the Southern Illinois Blues Society and the Murphysboro Chamber of Commerce, runs from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate. Advance tickets are available at the Chamber office, Farm Fresh and the Old Rome in Murphysboro and PMAC Music and Plaza Records in Carbondale or online at siblues.com. For Williams and his bandmates, this performance will be part of a continued celebration of the release of their newest album, “Jump

Start.” The CD features 13 original tracks penned by Williams and a cover of his uncle Hutto’s “If You Change Your Mind.” “I always pay tribute to my uncle on all my albums,” he said. “It keeps him alive in our hearts and our minds.” Playing music brought out a different side in Hutto, and that’s what Williams enjoys experiencing himself. He’s shared that personality with crowds of thousands live in arenas and on national television “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” When the time comes, he’ll slow down the pace of his career, but right now, Williams feels he’s only just beginning to pay his dues to this business. But there’s one goal that remains unfulfilled for now. “I hope one day I might be able to play in the White House — or at least close to it,” he said. adam.testa@thesouthern.com 618-351-5031
