Alpenglow Concert Series: Shane Smith & The Saints
August 6, 2018 @ 5:30 pmFREE
Singer-songwriter Shane Smith leads this hard-edged Americana quintet, robust with powerful vocals exerting a cappella and four-part harmonies, vivid lyrics, and thumping four-beat drums. Aggressive in their delivery, their creative roots music carries a raw country edge that makes the barn-burner feel like arson. Home-based in Austin, Texas, these five working musicians unleash incendiary shows, ignited by the band’s ability to draw from and feed back to the energy of the crowd. Lyrics turn the mundane into the transcendent, from the newly freed slave dancing in New Orleans’ Congo Square to the rueful reflection of a sinner who spent too much time on the wrong side of the church door. The band is Shane Smith (guitar), Bennett Brown (fiddle), Tim Allen (lead guitar), Chase Satterwhite (bass) and Zack Stover (drums), and they are hell bent on going places. Dance while you watch them rise.
Rain or shine on the Center’s Outdoor Stage.
