Bow Legged Skeeter – Thursday 9 May 2019
The Bow Legged Skeeter
The Bow Legged Skeeter are a 5-piece band playing hard driving Bluegrass and American Old-Time music with an emphasis on strong vocal harmonies.
Bluegrass music has derived from the music carried across from Britain and Ireland by settlers into the old colonies around the Appalachian Mountains, principally Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee. This old mountain music was also infused with Gospel and the Blues from Black musicians and Church choirs. There is also a huge instrumental tradition of Fiddle and Banjo tunes used for both dance music and for listening entertainment.
