Broken String Band, Lassine Kouyate & String Theory at Hendershots

$8 admission/$5 with student ID

10pm - Broken String Band
The Athens-based "Broken String Band" excites your senses with thrashing banjos, iconic harmonies, stompy percussion, sentimental lyricism, and a live energy that provides appropriate extremes of ups and downs for a show that is as electrifying as it is moving. Featuring Sean Patrick Stephansen (banjo), Taylor Thompson (guitar), John Phillips / Doctor Pogo (drums), and Laura Camacho / Laura Camacho (bass).

9pm - Lassine Kouyate
Lassine Kouyate is the West African Mande roots-meets-American folk rock project of Athens' own Americana and folk singer/songwriter Adam Klein. Featuring Steve Abercrombie (bass), Jamie Derevere (drums), Tony Oscar (percussion), Brian Smith (guitar), and Jim Wilson (shakers, djembe).

8pm - String Theory
String Theory (Athens, GA) plays old time, bluegrass and Americana music and is made up of some of Athens finest acoustic musicians. The music is high energy and refuses to let the audience sit back and simply listen: they have to move, dance or even just tap their feet. The lineup includes Tommy Jordan (banjo, guitar, vocals), Dick Daniels (bass, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Antoon Speters (mandolin, banjo, vocals), Susan Staley (guitar, vocals), and Dale Wechsler (fiddle).
