Do you hate Alzheimer’s disease? Well, here is your chance to help support a cause focused on funding research and development to end the disease while enjoying some local music.
Rattletrap Stringband, a staple in the Athens music scene, usually takes the stage at Casa every Monday night. The band’s sound is summed up fairly accurately by its name. The group creates rattling folk and bluegrass music with a collection of stringed instruments.
According to the band’s MySpace, Rattletrap Stringband has been “bangin’, sawin’ and hollerin’ away on tunes and songs from the golden age of country music” since the late '90s.
Adam Remnant, one-fourth of Athens’ own Southeast Engine, is scheduled to play a solo set. The guitarist and vocalist’s set should reflect Southeast Engine’s laid-back folk rock.
The band released an album titled Canary through Misra Records last year. The album, which reflects the Appalachian region during the Great Depression, received positive critical acclaim from many reputable sources.
Rattletrap Stringband’s guitar player and vocalist Darrin Hacquard is slated to play a solo set as well. Hacquard recently replaced Frank McDermott after he left the band to focus on operating Blue Eagle Music, the Court Street music shop he owns and operates. Prior to joining Rattletrap Stringband, Hacquard played with The Fox Hunt, a well-known stringband throughout Appalachia.
