POSEM in Saluda presents Sol Driven Train Sunday, June 3

Published 11:28 am Friday, June 1, 2012

The Purple Onion Sunday Evening Music (POSEM) series continues with Sol Driven Train on Sunday, June 3 at 7 p.m.
Sol Driven Train’s music absorbs songwriting influences like Jon Prine and Paul Simon and Afro-Caribbean rhythmic explorations into songs of life, love, loss and long johns.
The five-piece band, based in Charleston, S.C., features rotating lead vocalists and multi-instrumental talent spread across horns, strings and percussion. The band members share a musical history dating back to childhood.
Sol Driven Train is a band in motion. At shows, the band members bounce to the pulse of the music along with the crowd. Stylistically the band “seamlessly mixes Allmanesque southern rock, languid world-beat, swampy funk and downright catchy melodies as they swap lead singers and instruments.
A punchy horn section adds an extra dimension of sweaty soul to the genre-blurring jam party.” (Atlanta Creative Loafing).
Doors open at 6 p.m. and light fare will be available on the patio prior to the concert. Call 828-749-1179 to make reservations.
