WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?

Chicago is the home base of the Henhouse Prowlers, a group with a modern outlook when it comes to Bluegrass.

Trampled by Turtles is another band in the Alt Folk movement manned by rockers who decided to dabble in acoustic music as a change of pace and found so much success with it that it stuck.   

The SteelDrivers

Oct. 11 • Southgate House Revival

The band is made up of various Bluegrass and Country music veterans who are out to bring intensity in sound, great musicianship, solid songwriting and an open mind to the Bluegrass genre.

Hailing from the wilds of Idaho and now based in the teeming weirdness of Portland, Ore., identical twins Katelyn and Laurie Shook comprise half of the Shook Twins, their truthfully billed acoustic Folk outfit.  

Mountain's Range

Mountain Heart is a band that works hard to entertain, with the focus put on bringing high energy to the stage and working as a team, with every excellent musician getting their shot in the limelight.   

MilkDrive

May 4 • Stanley's Pub

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.  

Sara Watkins

March 11 • 20th Century Theatre

Sara Watkins has had a deceptively long career in music despite her young age. She came onto the scene as a member of the progressive Bluegrass group Nickel Creek, which featured her brother Sean Watkins and budding genius Chris Thile.   

Jason & the Punknecks

Jan. 11 • Southgate House Revival

The Punknecks’ bio doesn’t mince words. Calling themselves “Punky Tonkers,” Jason Punkneck is from Nashville while Polly Punkneck is from Kansas. The duo, along with their drummer Nick Punkneck, are apparently known for “a rowdy show of drinking, drugging, Jesus, smokin’ pot and living between heaven and hell.”   

Tim O’Brien

Nov. 29 • 20th Century Theatre

When Tim O’Brien plays guitar, mandolin or fiddle, the result could generally be described as Bluegrass. But it also represents the breadth of his myriad influences and his startling ability to incorporate them into his personal style.   

"Delloween" with The Del McCoury Band

Oct. 31 • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Monday, October 29, 2012
The Del McCoury Band is one of the most celebrated Bluegrass acts to date, but to say they are just a Bluegrass band would be doing them a disservice.
