Acoustic Manner

When: Wed., Sept. 12, 5:30-8:30 p.m. 2012

Spinning off from the groovegrass of their former group Barefoot Manner, this string band takes the verve of cosmic Americana to the acoustic set. Mandolin, bass, guitar, banjo and fiddle combine for fast-picked melodies and fresh ideas. Bandmates Shawn Chase, Walter Hensey, David Kleiss, Hank Smith and Lindsey Tims combine their love of bluegrass instrumentation with inspiration from roots, reggae and rock. Their lively performances and adventures in complexity drive home the appeal of bluegrass as a modern, dynamic musical form. The Piedmont Council of Traditional Music (aka PineCone) presents the concert as part of its "Pickin' in the Pines" bluegrass series, which continues on Wednesday evenings through September with performances by The Grass Cats (Sept. 19) and Charles Pettee & the Iron Mountain Messenger (Sept. 26). —Ashley Melzer
