Red Clay Ramblers

When: Sat., July 24, 8 p.m. 2010

There's a skill in expressing reverence for the past without becoming trapped. The Ramblers have spent nearly four decades honing that skill, and you'd be hard-pressed to find an act that better captures the sepia-toned warmth and energy of Appalachian folk and fiddle-fueled swing while subtly embedding elements of modernity. They've showcased their versatility on Broadway, in movies and alongside ballet companies. Yet more than simply capture a mood or spirit, they've proven to be fine storytellers, too, which is apparent on last year's Old North State. While The Waybacks gracefully bob and weave through styles, they have no answer for the Ramblers' unvarnished power or home-field advantage. —Chris Parker
