From Bill Revill
Tuesday evening at 6:30, live in the WESU studios on "Acoustic Blender," the South Carolina Broadcasters will be stopping by during their Northeast tour (they'll be back in town Saturday night at the Buttonwood Tree!) If you don't know their sound, the Broadcasters harken back to a sound of the bygone days of old time traditional country music. Their tight harmonies are reminiscent of the great family bands from the early days of radio when musicians would sing into a single microphone.
“We just sound like we sound,” says David Sheppard. “And what they sound like”, says Virginia State Folklorist, Jon Lohman, “is an arresting trio of fine musicians, playing the music they love the only way they know how, resulting in a sound that melds a seasoned artistry with playful exuberance....There is a sense of immediacy to The Broadcaster’s sound, which can bring old chestnuts to new life, while providing new originals with the patina and soul of the well-worn hills that inspire them.”
Tune in this Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. and hear them as stop by and visit us at "Acoustic Blender" on WESU, 88.1 FM and streaming live at www.wesufm.org. And tune in every Tuesday evening at 6:30 for the best in eclectic roots on "Acoustic Blender!"
