ALL ABOUT THE ...
ALL THUMBS REVUE
A. T. R.
The brainstorm of Ken Spooner, the All Thumbs Revue hopes to become an umbrella name for a revolving group of fingerstyle solo guitarists based around the Nashville area. Fingerstyle is also called thumb picking or Travis picking, for Merle Travis who took it from the coal mines of Kentucky to the world stage in the 1940s and 50s. Influencing many guitarists along the way, most notably Chet Atkins who helped to further popularise it to thousands of players and millions of listeners.
The inaugaral performance for A T R is Saturday Morning 11 AM July 8th on the Viva NashVegas Radio Show, which in spite of it's name, is actually a homespun live musical variety show tthat harkens back to live radio days. It
is streamed world wide on the internet
Viva shows are held a Kimbro's Cafe 213 S Margin St in historic Franklin, Tennessee. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Breakfast is available
