June 27 THE WAYFARERS – American Roots Music
Hailing from rural Southeast Ohio, The Wayfarers emerged onto the scene in early 2010 playing their own form of American Roots music. People of all ages will be drawn to the sounds of thumping washtub bass, driving guitars, sawing fiddles, and rich harmonies.With old-time radio shows setting the example, their style encompasses Appalachian dance music, traditional mountain fiddle tunes, and pre-bluegrass music of the 1920’s – resulting in a dose of nostalgic Americana.
June 27 FLOGO SHAGGINS – Funk Music
Here’s what Flogo Shaggins says on their about page, “We are a Columbus band delivering deep cuts and b-sides from the funk canon, as well as original quantum leapers from the 4th dimension.”
Translation: Flogo Shaggins is a Columbus based band that plays
- lots of songs you’re not likely to hear on the radi0,
- many from the less important side of a pop single record (if you even remember or know about single vinyl records).
- as well as original music that makes large leaps forward outside the range of ordinary experience.
We’re talking funk music here ” a popular genre of the 1970s and 1980s technically defined by a combination of African American soul music and a strong syncopated beat. But the definition offered by musical legend Prince hits closer to home: ”If you can describe it, it ain’t funky”. Funk is defined less by a strict set of stylistic rules and more by an attitude, with of course a beat that encourages DANCING…Gotta have that funk.” from History of Funk Music by Christopher Muscato
The event is free and open to the public and supported in part by Ohio Artists on Tour funding through the Ohio Arts Council.
