Three Dollar Band
Three Dollar Band is three musicians ((Adam Braunschweig; Chris Carr & Keith Van Winkle) with varied musical backgrounds striving to produce new arrangements and music inspired by traditional roots.
They perform a varied repertoire of American folk songs, Appalachian music, traditional Irish music, sea shanties, and original compositions. There has been much cross talk among these genres especially in the country we call home. From an Irish fiddler playing on the capstan of a British ship rousing an ethnically diverse crew in the 1860s, to the present repertoire you will hear in a Boston pub session, there has been much cross fertilization. Three Dollar Band respects and still studies the "pure drop" but have found they can present something new and equally exciting. http://www.myspace.com/threedollarband
They are playing a number of gigs around town. Check out their website for the schedules.
I highlight this gig because the Mo Valley Folklife group is worthy of support.
