Doug & Telisha Bring Wild Ponies to Rives, Nov 23

8 Nov

Wild Ponies

On Saturday, Nov 23, Martinsville’s own Doug and Telisha Williams are returning to their hometown with music from their latest record, Things That Used to Shine. But, don’t expect the acoustic folk duets that Martinsville’s favorite duo once sang, because the duo is no more. Since 2012, Doug and Telisha, along with drummer Jake Winebrenner, have built the new americana/roots/rock band, Wild Ponies. And their hard-hitting new lineup of songs are sure to blow the roof off the Rives.

Written during a busy year on the road, Things That Used To Shine is an album about leaving some things behind…and meeting others head-on. Released by the band’s newly formed independent label, DitchDog Records, Things That Used To Shine finds Telisha opening up about the skeletons that have haunted her closet for years.  Grammy-winning producer Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams) recorded the album’s 12 songs in three days, running the band’s harmonies through the same pre-amps once used by the Beatles. 

Advance tickets ($10) are available at Daily Grind and Woodall’s Music and Sound. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the show ($12). Doors open at 8 pm. Show starts at 9 pm.

    I’m confused – So is Wild Ponies on Saturday, Nov 23rd as originally stated…..or is it Friday, Nov 22nd or is it Sunday Nov 24th. All three dates are mentioned. I went to Woodall’s today and they didn’t know and didn’t have tickets.
