“Flying Cat” House Concert Series
Broad Ripple area
After a bit of time off to reflect (whilst sitting at a desk getting a regular paycheck to pay for her fourth album), MJ Bishop is back at it in 2017 and is set to release her first Nashville album in January/February. It’s big and fat and lush, with Nashville Cat paws ALL over it (Gary Morse and Danny Parks to name a few), and she’s over-the-top excited to be bringing her new music to Indiana and the “Flying Cat” House Concert Series!
To celebrate the release of her new CD, MJ will be joined by Joe Peters and Linda Hicks, who played at the first “Flying Cat” House Concert way back in August 2009.
Born and raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, MJ Bishop is an acoustic solo artist who, after residing in Seattle for 30 years, moved to Nashville in the Spring of 2010 to further hone her songwriting skills and begin work on her fourth album. Her music is described as open-road longing folk Americana. She has been compared to Patsy Cline, Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch. Combining deep roots in acoustic music with a maturing country sensibility, MJ creates a genre that is, in many ways, her own. Her influences include Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, k.d. lang, Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams.
MJ has taken her music to Seattle, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
