Winter Sessions at The Bridge will showcase mid-Missouri musicians

Monday, January 6, 2014 | 5:02 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — Lee Ruth, Naked Dave and Crooked Jack are some of the acts that will take center stage in January and February for the Winter Sessions 2014.

The Missouri River Cultural Conservancy will host the series of performances at The Bridge every Tuesday night in January and February. The sessions will be recorded and added to the organization's collection.

MoRivCC strives to archive local artists and the culture of the Missouri River region by making free recordings available to artists and the public.

"There's a priority on music that relates to the area," said Mike Cooper, vice president of MoRivCC. "We want original music that was written in central Missouri or relates to central Missouri."

Bob Runyon, who will play on Feb. 18 as part of the sessions, has been playing with cellist Greg Stillman since 1976.

"We've played together a long time," Runyon said. "It's usually a good time for all."

The MoRivCC Winter Sesssions 2014 will kick off Tuesday with Lee Ruth at 6 p.m. at The Bridge, 1020 E. Walnut St. The sessions are free and open to the public. More information and a schedule of the performances can be found at
