23 String Band
DAY 1: Friday @ 4:00 – 4:40 on North Stage
Hailing from Kentucky, the 23 String Band pays homage to the deep roots of American traditional music, while pushing forward with genre-bending, hard-driving originals and distinctive arrangements. Their youthful brand of “original hillbilly music” weaves in and out of old-time, bluegrass, acoustic roots, and anything else that strikes their fancy – it’s not uncommon to hear a Beastie Boys cover by these boys. It’s a winning combination that makes for an entertaining and energetic performance, and it’s taken the band everywhere from regional venues and private parties to literary conferences and music festivals.
