Hootenanny Artist Preview: Vagabond Swing (4 days out y’all!)

9 Sep

Vagabond Swing

Please welcome Vagabond Swing to the Hootenanny Family!  I have not witnessed a Vagabond Swing concert, but by all accounts and from what I have found on YouTube, the 45-minute set from 4:15pm-5pm on Saturday afternoon under the Grateful Fred Tent is going to be bouncing all directions with creative musical anarchy – too much fun for your own good!

These fellas come from Lafayette, LA, and they are bringing their own unique sound to the table here.  Instrumentation includes dual guitars, drums, mandolin, trumpet, and upright bass.  I’m sure there are some surprises in there, too.   With musical influences including gypsy/folk/bluegrass, punk/ska, avant garde/classical, and jazz, well, this is what you might get.  They describe their music as “a surprisingly smooth mixture of progressive Gypsy/Experimental/Circus-vibe/Swing tunes.”  That pretty much sums it up.  The video below is a good indicator of the fun and intensity that is a performance by Vagabond Swing.

Vagabond Swing is going to stick around after their set, so expect them to pop up possibly on stage elsewhere!  Y’all we’re going to have ourselves an incredible time this weekend, and you can purchase advance tickets until Thursday, Sept 12 @ 11pm EDT. 

***All advance purchases will receive a copy of a compilation from TDawg Presents’ 2nd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny that occurred in December of 2012, featuring Papa Mali, Larry Keel, Oteil Burbridge, Jimmy Hall, Rev. Jeff Mosier, Col. Bruce Hampton, Ike Stubblefied, Grant Green Jr., Deep Blue Sun and more!
