The dawning of spring in the foothills of Appalachia brings with it an array of sensory pleasures: the smell of freshly cut grass; the warmth of the sun’s rays; and the sweet, sweet sound of good old Americana folk.
The Bloodroots Barter will be stopping by Jackie O’s this Friday and will bring with them a taste of spring and some finger pickin’ good bluegrass tunes to boot.
A new band with a traditional proposition, The Bloodroots Barter have been influenced by everyone from Woody Guthrie to Tom Waits to the Avett Brothers. They play a crowd-pleasing mix of traditional tunes, like the classic “Wayfaring Stranger,” as well as originals which still manage to have that “old favorite” feel to them--like a well worn pair of blue jeans.
Playing good tunes both about and for good people, The Bloodroots Barter are an alt-country sensation sure to captivate the hearts of the Athens music scene.
