Grab your fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, dobro, cajón, upright bass, and come on down for a Bluegrass Pickin' Party! Or just bring yourself and enjoy some dinner, a craft beer or a specialty drink and soak in some of the best damn bluegrass jammin' in Atlanta. It’s an evening of Americana finery!
Pittsburgh, PA-based guitarist Daryl Shawn and Charlottesville, VA's Together S•O•U•L will take the stage to perform short sets (for tips) at certain points during the evening.
Doors @ 6 PM
Solo guitarist Daryl Shawn blends the techniques of flamenco and classical guitar with rhythms from around the world and the energy of rock. Guitar International notes that Shawn "possesses the ability to take a nylon-string guitar and make it roar with dynamic precision and raging power." He is frequently on the road and is currently touring in support of his fourth album, "On Time".
Together S•O•U•L is an acoustic duet formed in Charlottesville, Virginia. While Ryan Garst had an upbringing in low-country Virginia, Emily Kresky was born and raised in urban New Jersey. Together, they match in gorgeous vocal harmonies and melodic guitar lines, forming a uniquely-flavored spin on contemporary indie folk-pop.
