Django Haskins

When: Sat., Aug. 6, 5-8 p.m. 2011

By now, Django Haskins should know the ropes of playing the Saxapahaw Rivermill series. "I've actually played the farmers market every year since its inception," explains The Old Ceremony front man. There's really no mystery to what keeps bringing him back, though. "There is a certain charm to performing on the back of a hay wagon, surrounded by fresh produce. The Saxapahaw shows always feel like a backyard concert—casual, grassy, and warm." The show's also an opportunity for a musician who spent years touring solo (and released five solo records) before forming the ambitious Old Ceremony to break out the back catalogue and to try a new take on some of his band's favorites. "It feels good to keep those muscles in use," says Haskins. "I'm freer to dip into really deep cuts in terms of the set list, and to follow potentially bizarre trains of thought in between songs. On a good night, it balances between campfire and vaudeville." —Ashley Melzer
