$12.50

Laced with elements of ragtime, blues, country, folk and rockabilly, this critically praised, drummer-less trio—consisting of guitarist/front man Pete Bernhard, stand-up bassist Lucia Turino, and guitarist Cooper McBean—brings forth a genuine approach to acoustic music.

Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition – Saturday, January 26

Most people have no idea what I really do. Mostly I play what I want and right now I play with Tri–State Coalition: Matt pierce from Arkansas, Terrence Bishop from Tennessee, Eric Carlton, and Ryan Rogers from Mississippi. Together we made The White Buffalo.”
