The BLTs w/ After the Flood (Special Event)

  • 08 Apr 2017
  • 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Seekers Church, Washington, DC
The BLTs started out as the house band at Merritt's Grill in Chapel Hill, NC, playing for tips and BLTs. Not their first rodeo: Jon Newlin & Amy Davis, who delighted audiences at the 2016 FSGW Getaway, previously played with The Hushpuppies and the Maudlin Brothers; taught at vocal week at Augusta Heritage Center; and backed up their niece Elizabeth LaPrelle on her first three CDs. They are joined by fiddle master Bob Herring, formerly of the Easy Street String Band. 

Opening: After the Flood. From the liner notes to their eponymous 2016 CD: "Blurring the boundaries between sacred and secular styles, After the Flood walks the line between the church and the city streets, singing songs of justice and devotion, of brokenness and praise in soaring harmony. ? The homegrown six-piece band started out as a close harmony trio at St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church in D.C.
