THE HOWLIN' BROTHERS
Friday, May 3, 2013 - 8:00 pm, $10.00



The Howlin' Brothers website

The Howlin' Brothers are a three-piece string band that brings heart and passion into every performance. Their upbeat shows are heavy with original and traditional music, featuring the sounds of slide banjo, harmonica and old-time fiddle.

"They juxtapose many forms of traditional music together: country blues, bluegrass, folk, gospel, to create a very fresh and unique sound that is completely their own."
- Bill Hurley/The Alternate Root TV

"Tennessee trio The Howlin' Brothers offer a distinctly bluegrass take on the blues, adding upright bass, fiddle and banjo to covers of greats such as Muddy Waters as well as pumping out original foot stompers".
- Time Out Chicago

The Howlin' Brothers are bringing their show all across America in 2013. Their latest album "HOWL" produced by Brendan Benson will be available March 5th, on Benson's label Readymade Records.

Ben Plasse - upright bass, banjo, vocals
Ian Craft - fiddle, banjo, vocals
Jared Green - guitar, harmonica, vocals

Mon, Feb 9, 2015 - Area bands celebrate indie music, WEXT

ALBANY -- Holly Taormina shouted into the mic halfway through her 30-minute set, "If you want something done, you got to do it yourself." Perhaps that was the theme of the Indie Fest show Saturday night at the Linda, a fundraiser for WEXT radio and the Columbia Arts Team. Read More

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More
