Live music at Saluda Arts Festival
The ninth annual Saluda Arts Festival will be held May 19 in downtown Saluda.
In addition to browsing through the booths of the more than 80 participating fine artists and skilled craftspeople, festival-goers can enjoy live music on the stage at the McCreery Park Pavilion. The following bands will perform:
11 a.m. One Leg Up
Based in Asheville, N.C., One Leg Up performs a mixture of upbeat gypsy jazz, Latin, swing and original jazz compositions. Visit www.onelegupjazz.com.
1 p.m. The Danberrys
Drawing deep from the blues, folk, bluegrass and soul/funk traditions, the Danberrys deliver original tunes featuring strong harmonies. “Company Store,” the group’s first EP, was released in April 2010 and was followed by the single “Shady Grove” in June 2011. Visit www.thedanberrys.com.
3 p.m. The Honeycutters
Singer/songwriter Amanda Anne Platt’s vocals are complemented in The Honeycutters by lead guitarist and producer Peter James, Spencer Taylor on mandolin, Ian Harrod on bass and Richard Foulk on the drums. Visit www.thehoneycutters.com.
