For much of recent history, American Roots music has been recognized as a nationwide (and even global) artform. What was once a sonic landscape dominated by the South, now has powerhouse acts stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles. Yes, there may be talent from shore to shore, but don’t count the South out just yet. From the fertile music scenes of Georgia, there have grown two supremely talented acts that will be on display at The Melting Point. Stewart & Winfield, dubbed ‘the South’s answer to the No Depression, Midwestern sound.’ Joining them will be Cicada Rhythm, who have garnered plenty of buzz for the modern folk music that they perform with deep southern charm. Catch them both on Friday November 2nd for only $10 advance!
Born and raised in Georgia, this talented pair imitates and modernizes folk music to a rejuvenating degree. Their sound exhibits skilled and articulate guitar picking honed in the dive bars of Atlanta over rolling Julliard-trained bass lines. Expect chilling harmonies, unbridled enthusiasm, some wholesome tunes and a sincere performance. more >>> General Admission$10.00 in advance
