jimmy  Jimmy Carl

Satuday June 15, 12p.m.-3p.m.

Known to Yalaha Bakery audiences for his work with Americana porch-band the Simple Cavemen, singer-songwriter multi-instrumentalist Jimmy Carl exudes much the same fun, musically inventive vibe as a solo act.

Equipped with a variety of instruments that include, guitar, banjo and assorted strange hybrids, Jimmy accompanies himself on material that ranges from fresh approaches to old favorites to carefully crafted originals. Schooled by the work of the Beatles, Hank Williams, Neil Young, Allen Toussaint and the titans of old-school R&B, he specializes in music that makes you want to sing along.

Along the way, you just might watch him attempt the impossible, such as a one-man version of the Beatles’ “A Day In the Life.” (It can be done!)

Between the songs, Jimmy is known to spin a few entertaining yarns, about everything from the roots of a beloved oldie to the offbeat stories behind his own songs. So please, pull up a chair and join the fun.
