The heavy beat and fast paced tempo of stomp meets the acoustic and rich resonance of folk on East 6th at Trinity Hall this Friday.
The folk-revival quartet, Hello Wheels, will be bringing their stomp-folk style to the chaos of dirty 6th. Hello Wheels– composed of Matt Bradshaw, Nick Garza, John Shaw, and Peter Shults– appeals to the ears and heart with eclectic harmonies with their tender sounds of old-soul wrapped up in an upbeat folk style with their flawless use of the acoustic guitar, banjo, upright bass, percussion and brass. Early last summer, Hello Wheels released their debut EP, Baby John The Fox, and was featured on KUT’s “Song of the Day” in late September.
Friday’s performance will also include another pioneer of the stomp-folk genre, Shakey Graves. An honored pioneer at that, on behalf of Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell, February 9, 2012 has been proclaimed “Shakey Graves Day” in Austin, Texas. The one-man-band, made up of Alejandro Rose-Garcia, performs acoustically ontop of a strange musical contraption, indulging in rich chords, a strong southern voice, and conscious-strumming lyrics.
The evening will also have the soft touch of alternative country from Cryin Cole Wilson & Those Miserable Cowboys to compliment the acoustic aspects of the stomp-folk night.
