Packway Handle Band, Corduroy Road and Cicada Rhythm
Wowing audiences across the country with close 4-part harmonies and their dance around two tightly-spaced condenser mics. Packway Handle Band has emerged at the national forefront of bands that use a gather-around-the-mic style. And what they do best is rooted in thought provoking songwriting, clever choice and arrangement of bluegrass traditionals, and totally unexpected (even totally inappropriate) covers, all delivered with a crackling energy.
The Corduroy Road is an Americana band from Athens, GA. “Fans of anything from country to bluegrass to folk rock will especially enjoy The Corduroy Road’s notoriously lively shows.” says Flagpole Magazine.
Born and raised in Georgia, Cicada Rhythm imitates and modernizes folk music to a rejuvenating degree. Their sound exhibits skilled and articulate guitar picking honed in the dive bars of Atlanta over rolling Julliard-trained bass lines. Expect chilling harmonies, unbridled enthusiasm, some wholesome tunes and a sincere performance.
