The members of Driftwood hail from a working town, but play music rooted in the land, leaning alternately into folk, old-time, country, punk, and rock, depending on their personal moods and their songs’ needs.
March 12th- The Waydown Wanderers and Special Guests: Ghost of Paul Revere
The Way Down Wanderers combines folk with boy-band appeal: a quintet with gorgeous vocals, instrumentals, some dreads and a whole bunch of youthful energy.
March 19th- The Outside Track
This post St. Paddy's day show will be a truly Celtic afternoon of music as the performance is a Scotch, Irish and Cape Breton fusion of songs, tunes and step dance.
March 26th - Bill Staines
Bill's music is a slice of Americana, reflecting with the same ease his feelings about the prairie people of the Midwest or the adventurers of the Yukon, the on-the-road truckers, or the everyday workers that make up this land. Singing mostly his own songs, Staines has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today, performing nearly 200 concerts a year and driving over 65,000 miles annually. He weaves a blend of gentle wit and humor into his performances and one reviewer wrote, "He has a sense of timing to match the best standup comic."
"Sleder's Family does not purchase music licensing from BMI/ASCAP//SESAC, musicians can only play their own music (YOU wrote it and YOU control the copyright) or their own renditions (YOU arranged it and YOU control the copyright) of public domain material. Make sure all musicians playing with you know this."
