Carnegie Hall begins the 2022 Ivy Terrace Concert Series this Thursday, June 9, at 6:30 p.m. Ryan Cain and the Ables, authentic rockabilly and honky-tonk from the hills of West Virginia. Sponsored by City National Bank, the concerts take place outside on Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace as attendees watch from the expansive lawn in front of New River Community and Technical College. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and pack a picnic to enjoy live music. All Ivy Terrace concerts are free and open to the public.
Ryan Cain is a native West Virginian musician who has traveled the East Coast for more than twenty years performing early rock ‘n’ roll hits and his original material.
Exciting live performances have gained Ryan Cain and the Ables a large fan base of all ages that grows every day. Cain’s 2012 album “My Pistol Rides Shotgun,” was critically acclaimed and was nominated for an Ameripolitan Award for “Best New Rockabilly Album.” Singles from that album went on to earn a spot in a NASCAR/Mobil 1 Oil advertisement campaign, while another track was used in the CW’s hit series “Supernatural.” With the release of his 2016 album, “Cupid and the Devil,” Cain reached new personal artistic heights – a real “musician’s choice.”
In 2020, Cain teamed up with pianist, Matt Jordan, whose repertoire includes touring with Reverend Horton Heat and Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats; and Clint Lewis on upright bass, the immensely talented Mountain Stage veteran who also toured internationally with The Wild Rumpus.
