An Evening With Paul Thorn

GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi welcomes Paul Thorn to the Sanders Soundstage on Wednesday, October 10 for a special performance followed by a discussion on his most recent album, Don't Let the Devil Ride.

Paul Thorn’s new release, Don’t Let the Devil Ride, marks Thorn’s first time recording gospel music, after a dozen albums in roots-rock mode. The son of a preacher man, Mississippi-raised Thorn spent much of his childhood in church, participating in multiple weekly services with his father as well as at neighboring African American congregations, where he became entranced with the music whose infectious spirit is captured on the new album. 

Don’t Let the Devil Ride collects soulful songs originally cut by black southern gospel groups, and features guests Blind Boys of Alabama, the McCrary Sisters, the Preservation Hall Jazz Horns, and Bonnie Bishop. “This is the culmination of my whole life in music, coming back to my gospel roots,” says Paul Thorn about his newest album, Don’t Let the Devil Ride. “My message on this record is ‘let’s get together’—I want to help lighten your load and make you smile.”

Tickets on sale for Non-Members starting at 10am on September 13, 2018.
