High Strung String Band

Saw our favorite local band this Saturday, doing a free concert in Decatur Square. I took these videos on my phone, so I apologize for the quality. Also, I think one of them cut off when I ran out of memory.

I'm not sure you can technically call them a bluegrass band anymore since they lost their banjo player and added a drummer(!) Also, at least at this show, guitarist John Mickelson played electric(!!)

They mostly write their own songs which is unusual for a young string band, I've only ever heard them do one Bill Monroe cover. I have heard them cover Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, and DJ Khaled. I wish I had videos of those.

Anyway, please enjoy the High Strung String Band, and go here for more information about upcoming dates and/or to purchase one of their excellent cd's.
