If you’ve followed me at all over the years on this blog, you know that I have a big affinity for Southern Culture on the Skids. Years and years after I gave up trying to make music performance my business, these old touring partners are still going at it, with a devoted cult following and a musical tightness honed by years on the road and in the studio. Total respect. Cool tunes. too.
Better yet, two members of the trio — drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer Mary Huff — are native Roanokers. They live in the band’s home base near Chapel Hill, N.C., these days, but they still have ties here. And fortunately for their valley fans, they play here more frequently these days, too.
SCOTS’ next Roanoke stop happens on March 16, for a St. Patty’s Day gig at Growler’s American Grill and Venue, at Towers. Black Mountain Revival opens the show. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Nanner puddin’ in effect.
Now for some video, with Huff singing “It’s The Music that Makes Me.”
