Jim James to play a Benefit For The Rudyard Kipling
featuring Ron & Sarah Elizabeth Whitehead
June 3, 2007


Jim James
Jim James will play a tribute to one of Louisville's very own places of fantasy on June 3. The Rudyard Kipling opened its doors in 1983 and has been an integral part of Louisville music culture for the last 23 years. Spanning genres and generations, The Rudyard Kipling has been a home to many legendaries: Wynton Marsalis, My Morning Jacket, Ralph Stanley, The John Cowan Band, James McMurtry, and Josh Ritter, to name only a few.

In Ron Whitehead's words, "The Rudyard Kipling is like Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, only more intimate. There are no barriers between artist and audience." The communion that is created during a Jim James solo performance will be enhanced by sharing the stage with Ron & Sarah Elizabeth Whitehead as they are honoring The Rudyard Kipling's storied past and hopeful future.

Awesome to hear that people haven't forgotten about this tragedy. Hopefully more will come.

How about some artists doing a show in memory of the Va Tech shootings? It almost seems like a month after the shootings people have almost forgot about it. Katrina was the worst natural disaster and Va Tech was the worst shooting on our on soil, someone should put a gig together in memory of those innocent students and teachers on that horrific morning.

Natural disasters cannot be avoided, but the aftermath in this case was the biggest tragedy. Let's remember to take care of each other each and every day. By the way...Jim James is the man!
