Join your SDBS friends for holiday cheer and great bluergass music on Tuesday December 27, 2016 at the Boll Weevil. We'll have a special holiday presentation by the ever popular Wood 'N Lipps bringing seasonal music, and we will feature Chris Clarke and Plow in concert.
Like any good Slumgullion stew, Plow borrows ingredients from Americana Heritage Music, adds its own spices, and puts the whole pot on a rolling boil. The result is a simmering musical concoction that wafts through the air and connects the listener to America’s musical past and present.
When Acoustic musicians find synergy, it’s special. When the result of that synergy is unexpected, with improvised twists and turns, the ride is exciting, amusing and ultimately satisfying. Plow is the result of four men finding common musical ground, then deciding to break new ground and bring their own personal and shared musical expressions to listeners.
