Brackish Water Jamboree - Wednesday, February 21, 6-8 pm

SQUARE Brackish Water Jamboree 1

Known for an eclectic mix of foot-stomping bluegrass, old-time folk and classic Americana featuring original songs (and a few staple standards) that echo classic country, upbeat Appalachian fiddle tunes, ragtime blues, the Bakersfield sound, and more, this band is making waves in the music scene.

Brackish Water Jamboree is Paul Bidanset - vocals, banjo, guitar, harmonica; Rachel Gaither - fiddle; Ben Lassiter - dobro; Wes Russow - drums, washboard; and Taylor Vertrees - upright bass.

Brackish Water Jamboree named their roots-music free-for-all after the swampy confluence from which they hail: Tidewater, Virginia. But in just a few years since their formation, they've experienced much success extending beyond their hometown. They've shared the bill with roots-greats such as Hackensaw Boys, The Steel Wheels, and The Honey Dewdrops; their single “Home'“ was featured on the cult-revered Americana music website No Depression; and their full-length self-titled debut album reached the top 40 of iTunes' "New Country Music" chart the month of its release.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
