On Thursday, Oct. 3, Outlaw Stance will play. They are a rowdy ragtime, heel-kicking country and booze drinking bluegrass band with a side of eastern European tunes. This string band plays anything from ragtime to bluegrass to klezmer.
With many flavors of influences you could get just about any genre you want from a string band. Members constantly change, but you are always in for a good foot stomping time.
On Friday, Oct. 4, don’t miss Barbados artist David Kirton. Kirton blends elements of reggae, soul, rock and pop into a contemporary yet natural sound, which he then delivers with his exotically smooth, soul dipped voice. The UK’s Sunday Mercury wrote, “Barbadian balladeer Kirton has the crossover appeal to break him big in the mainstream pop charts.”
Kirton’s organic strong lyrics layered over guitar driven rhythms is one of the elements that separate him from the pack of Caribbean artists. His music moves past the reverent Caribbean rhythms of the past and on to the airwaves, dance floors and digital devices of the future. He touches the heart, head and feet, making you feel, think and dance.
