We’ve been getting lots of Radio airplay all over the country lately! This week we are #28 on the Relix Jam Band Charts, and #232 on the AMA Americana Charts.
If you have an hour to kill, check out this great interview we did with WREK radio. We talk about the past. present, and future of the band as well as an in depth look at the songs from Whiskey Stills & Sleeping Pills.
The interview starts about 4 minutes in on the “The Last Show” Stream http://www.wrek.org/northavenue/
We are headed to Greenville August 25th to take over the Handlebar. Here’s a description of the show from the Handle Bar:
“Tent-revival trifecta takes pickin’ and stompin’ to new level
While mourning the loss of Doc Watson — the pioneer who made old-timey pickin’ current and made contemporary Appalachia old-timey — these young musicians are some of the best new acoustic/string-band ensembles to celebrat
e the grass that’s blue and the old blues that rock. The trifecta includes Seven Handle Circus, The Deadfields and Bent Strings, all alumni of Albino Skunk Bluegrass Festival, where fans often get their first taste of the region’s best new pickers. The six-piece Seven Handle Circus distills traditional bluegrass and folk into a modern sound that would make Doc proud, while injecting their live shows with nuclear-powered energy. The Deadfields stomp and sing a blend of bluegrass, Americana, country and rock in deeply Southern tent-revival shows that have brought near-sellout crowds. And the Bent Strings is akin to the lamentably late Belleville Outfit, a too-young, too-talented band that puts a spirited spin on influences ranging from Nickel Creek to the Strokes. Just what Doc ordered.”
TWANG-ON is only two weeks away! We are getting so excited to play with Whiskey Gentry on July 12th as they record their Live Album at Smith’s Olde Bar!
Also on the bill is our friends High Strung String Band. Get your tickets NOW cause these shows will sell out and we want to see all your faces there!
