Find Bluegrass and Rockabilly At The Folk Festival [VIDEO]
This year's American Folk Festival includes a couple of bluegrass acts and one that will play some wicked rockabilly.
Each year's AFF features a lot of international music, like Quebecois, African, and even southern Gospel. But, as much as I enjoy those performances, I always look forward to the acts with more of a 'country' flair. Go figure, right? And this year's festival includes three, although one of the bluegrass acts is considered 'Celtic bluegrass.' Here are the three performers I'm looking forward to seeing this weekend:
Jeannette and Johnny Williams, a married couple who have been playing music together for over 30 years. Jeannette has performed with Alison Kraus, Ralph Stanley, and Larry Sparks.
Charm City Junction, a Baltimore-based group that combines Celtic, bluegrass, and Irish melodies that will keep your toes tapping throughout their performance.
Wayne Hancock, who blends Honky Tonk, rockabilly, Texas swing, and big band music for a sound that earned the nickname 'King of Juke Joint Swing.'
