The 333 Coffeehouse, Annapolis’ monthly listening space for folk and acoustic music, is excited to present the Sligo Creek Stompers.
Admission: $10 (students, senior citizens and members $8).
Sligo Creek Stompers play a raucous but refined blend of traditional roots music: Appalachian & Midwestern old time and bluegrass, New Orleans-style traditional jazz, haunted Irish fiddle tunes, honky tonk & classic country, Texas & gypsy swing. Inspired by scratchy 78 rpm records, contra dancing and a good bottle of whiskey, the Stompers are keeping the flame of American stringband music alive in the Washington, DC area.
The band’s four members—Sarah Foard, Adrian Erlinger, Jess Eliot Myhre, and Chris Ousley—first began playing together in 2010 at farmer’s markets, street corners, and barn dances. In August 2012, the Sligo Creek Stompers brought their sound to the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, a show that made them fixtures in the local traditional music scene. Their second album, Vital Mental Medicine, was released in January 2013 to a sold out audience at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue.
