Good Grief! What do you get when you put 2000 musicians in a one block area for 5 days? Mostly mahem as it turns out, but in a good way….We have played music with so many great people and heard so many super musicians that we couldn’t tell you about them all in a week, BUT…here are two bands you should check out:
it’s hard to express how bizarre and fun these guys are and how great their music is
The Carolina Chocolate Drops http://www.sankofastrings.com/ccd/home.html
Traditional Black old-time string band music – great musicians, great performers (qualities not always found together!) amazing! And you should see Rowan and their bones player, Dom, play together…now that’s something.
