The Lawrence Peters Outfit from Chicago is a dyed-in-the-wool honky tonk band, with bluegrass influences, in the tradition of Webb Pierce, Jimmy Martin, George Jones, Roger Miller, and Loretta Lynn. Former Lawrence resident Peters sings and plays snare drum, leading the band through his classic-sounding originals, and a choice selection of vintage material. The group gets it just right, with plenty of fire on the faster tunes, and that sweet country smolder on the moodier songs. Like flies in the stable, The Horsebite Tears gather ‘round Shawn Bruce while he sings his Twango tales of love gone wrong and drinking gone right. The recently blossoming Sunflower Colonels bring Barnhillian Bluegrass to bear at 6:00, their new CD in flower.
