Truckstop Honeymoon / The Prairie Acre (early all-ages patio show)

Event details

These two top-shelf Lawrence bluegrassy acts should combine for quite the farewell party for this year's early shows on the patio. One of these days, Truckstop Honeymoon may well become known as a badass bluegrass band from LAWRENCE. But for now, they're still often known as transplants from N'Orleans, as so much of their latest music is infused with their experience being dislocated by Hurricane Katrina. The husband/wife duo's fifth LP "Great Big Family" boldly reflects on the loss of their former life in the Big Easy and the start of a new one in Kansas. Lawrence's old-timey bluegrass quartet The Prairie Acre pack a hootenanny-caliber yawp with hearty heapings of clawhammer banjo and traditional fiddle. The band's repertoire primarily spans public domain songs, but joyous originals are interspersed without skipping a beat. Bring Grandma, bring the kids, and don't forget the lemonade 'cause the whole family is gonna be dancing something fierce. Listen to our podcast interview with the band..
