Fiddler's Green Coffeehouse - February 16, 2019
This month: Two local groups, Jim Culliton & Clear Creek Band and The Justin Sams Band. Multi-instrumental virtuoso Jim Culliton has been a favorite of Fiddler’s Green audiences for many years. In Jim Culliton & Clear Creek Band his guitar, mandolin, fiddle and vocals blend with Walter Dean’s dobro and Joel Glogowski’s upright bass. This high-energy trio offers an eclectic mix of different acoustic genres, mixing instrumental improvisation with traditional sounds and vocals. Their style incorporates bluegrass, world music, rock, jazz, and classical. Drawing inspiration from folk music, country blues, psychedelic rock, and good old-fashioned storytelling, The Justin Sams Band defies convenient categorization; but some describe the band’s sound as eclectic-electric-folk-rock. They perform esoteric covers and original material by their two songwriters,Tom Spach and Lindsay Petsch. Presented by Atlanta Area Friends of Folk Music (AAFFM).
