Music at 7 p.m. David Sickmen of Hackensaw Boys opens.
North Carolina’s Sarah Shook sings with a conviction and hard honesty rare in today’s Americana landscape. Always passionate, at times profane, Shook stalks/walks the line between vulnerable and menacing, her voice strong and uneasy, country classic but with contemporary, earthy tension.
If Janis Joplin played alt-country music, she'd sound like this.
The Disarmers are out of the golden era of alt-country, part Uncle Tupelo, part Bottle Rockets, and a pinch of Robbie Fulks. "Without condition or argument, North Carolina’s Sarah Shook is one of the best, most compelling forces rising in American roots music today," wrote one smitten live reviewer for the Orlando paper.
David Sickmen is the songwriter and frontman of the legendary Americana band Hackensaw Boys. For the past 20 years, Hackensaw Boys have been a hard-touring force of nature, bringing a punk ferocity to their string-band base and a powerful sensitivity to their ballad roots.
