These days, acoustic music has seen a resurgence under the umbrella genre of “New Acoustic,” ranging from the Chambergrass of groups like The Punch Brothers and the Celtic/Alt Folk of Mumford & Sons and Avett Brothers.
Currently, the group MilkDrive is reviving the jazzy grooves of the Grisman Quintet.MilkDrive’s latest album is called Waves and it swings with a fun, light and breezy mid-1960s feel. The band brings mostly original music to the table, but they will also put a jazzy twist on songs by The Beatles and others along the way.
MILKDRIVE performs Saturday, May 4 with Mama's Porch at Stanley's Pub in Columbia-Tusculum. Buy tickets, check out performance times and get venue details here.
