Pickin' In the Park Concert Series, Week 1 - Shinyribs, with opening act Locust Honey
After 18 years of good times and hard travelin’ with The Gourds, Kevin Russell has been riding high on the Shinyribs river of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip-shaking, belly-laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world class band featuring Winfield Cheek on keyboards, Keith Langford on drums, Jeff Brown on bass and the Tijuana Train Wreck Horns.
Locust Honey String Band (opening act) - Chloe, Hilary, and Meredith bring their respective experience in Old-Time, Bluegrass, and Pre-war Blues to both their original material and the traditional songs and tunes of the American Southeast. With a rotating instrumentation of fiddles, open-back and resonator banjos, acoustic and resonator guitars and upright bass, they set an emphasis on lively arrangements that showcase their vintage three-part vocal harmonies. "Heart-breakin' Country Harmonies and Raging Old-time Fiddle Tunes"
