Hillbilly Music: Old Sledge brings the music of the mountains
By Kristi Kates
The sound of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia comes to Northern Michigan this week, with the arrival of Old Sledge.
This winter is going to be a busy one for Old Sledge, begins the bands Sabra Guzmán. we wrapped up a great summer with festivals and new venues, and for this fall, were getting to visit four new towns in Michigan. Were really excited to be treading into new territory, and hope to make some new friends and fans!
If youre a fan of traditional old-timey music, whether fiddle tunes, Appalachian classics, or revitalized blues, chances are youll quickly become a fan of Guzmán and her bandmate, aptly named Chance McCoy. The pair of friends, who often round out their duo sound by adding frequent live collaborators Ben Townsend or Jake Hopping, will be performing in Petoskey this Saturday at the Crooked Tree Arts Center.
