Shovels & Rope w/ John Wesley Satterfield, Post-Timey String Band, Elizabeth Warwick, Paul Brazel
New Brookland Tavern, West Columbia, SC Thurs, Feb 16 7pm $7
Brilliant Americana duo Shovels & Rope, featuring Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst are coming to New Brookland on Thursday. It is definitely going to be a treat for everyone who attends. They play raw, story driven songs that feature the two on acoustic guitar, harmonica and a broken down drum kit, with each trading lead vocals and instruments throughout their live set. They will be releasing their first album under the name Shovels & Rope this spring (they previously toured as solo artists).
They have played shows with Justin Townes Earle, The Felice Brothers, and Butch Walker. I’m sure that their live show is pretty incredible due to all the touring that they did last year. WUSC received Michael Trent’s last album The Winner last year and I was really impressed. His voice is reminiscent of Conor Oberst’s quirky singing and his instrumentation is highly impressive. Putting these two talented artists together on stage on Thursday night is sure to be something special, don’t miss out.
