The Howlin’ Brothers
Wednesday. June 20
The Howlin’ Brothers are a Nashville based string band composed of Ian Craft, Dan Swan and Jared Green. Anchored in a bed of old-time blues and bluegrass, their upbeat shows are heavy with original and traditional music, featuring the sounds of slide banjo, harmonica and old-time fiddle. Sounding like what would happen if a bunch of Appalachian punk rockers formed a jug-band, The Howlin’ Brothers play with a ferocious energy that drags you in and finds you boogieing along in spite of yourself.
Insurgent Country’s, Johanna B. Bodde states, “Long discussions can be held about the musical style. Blues, country, old-time and more in the most pure format, mixed in with elements of folk, swamp rock, ragtime, honky tonk. This can’t really be labeled, but the few remaining record stores are known to be creative! Let’s try a few comparisons: The Old Crow Medicine Show, Pokey LaFarge, and The Carolina Chocolate Drops.
Although they’re fast becoming famous, they still don’t have any annoying attitude – they’re still your friendly neighbors playing on the porch!”
