Sideline and Hogslop String Band, two powerful bluegrass groups grounded in the principles of pure, rowdy, pure Southern roots, perform back-to-back for an evening full of pulsating beats on November 5th. The show starts at 8 p.m.
Sideline, a six-piece band from North Carolina, started out as a side project of three seasoned musicians before they rose to fame. Founding members Steve Dilling, Skip Cherryholmes and Jason Moore each have over 20 years of genre-defining performances, including several appearances at the Grand Ole Opry. The three founders, along with newcomers Zack Arnold, Jamie Harper and Jacob Greer, have started producing albums in earnest over the past decade, which has seen the group win the IBMA Song of the Year award. year in 2019 for their single “Thunder Dan”.
Hogslop String Band hails from Tennessee and has its roots in an old school love for classical string music. Calling Hogslop only a string orchestra, however, would not be entirely accurate. Hogslop specializes in old-school string music that pushes the boundaries, infusing elements of psychedelic rock, country and pop endurance to create classic string music with a modern twist. The group has won every major string orchestra competition in the South, and in 2019 they released their self-titled debut studio album.
