THE LEGENDARY SHACK SHAKERS hell-for-leather roadshow has earned quite a name for itself with its unique brand of Southern Gothic and swampy “hillbilly blues” that is all-at-once irreverent, lyrical, dangerous, and fun. Led by their charismatic, rail-thin frontman and blues-harpist JD Wilkes, the Shack Shakers are a four-man wrecking crew from the South whose explosive interpretations of swamp blues, rock n’ roll and hillbilly music have made fans, critics and legions of potential converts into true believers. The band’s latest is ‘After You’ve Gone’. http://www.legendaryshackshakers.com/home

BELA FLECK AND ABIGAIL WASHBURN, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy Award winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres, and Abigail Washburn a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized it by combining it with Far East culture and sounds. With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, the duo’s self-titled debut earned the 2016 Grammy for Best Folk Album. Their second album ‘Echo in the Valley’ on Rounder Records is simultaneously familiar and wildly innovative.  https://www.belafleck.com/bela-fleck-abigail-washburn/
