Craig Butterfield, Post Timey String Band

When: Thu., Sept. 5, 8 p.m. 2013

Adept in both classical and jazz realms, double bassist extraordinaire Craig Butterfield has played in trumpeter Maynard Ferguson's ensemble and with classical guitarist Matthew Slotkin in the unconventional duo Dez Cordas. His expressive, lyrical playing takes the spotlight in this show, as he performs solo with electronic accents. Columbia, S.C., outfit the Post-Timey String Band isn't bound to tradition, using banjo, guitar, harmonica and kazoo to tackle tender folk ballads, stormy bouts of gothic blues-rock and quirky novelties such as "Kalump Kalump"—a campy ditty written from an elephant's perspective. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $5
