Uncle Earl at Jammin’ Java

Friday November 4 9:30PM $10 bluegrass

Call it old-time for our times: with their infectious energy, undeniable charisma, sharp musicianship, and unique repertoire of original and traditional songs, Uncle Earl is bringing the string band legacy proudly into the modern era. The bandÔø?s national debut album, She Waits for Night, is that rare project that is enriched by tradition but never enslaved by it Ôø? at once defiantly old-fashioned and defiantly contemporary. It is a sound that bridges gaps. Steady touring over the past two years has found the band appealing equally to folk, old-time, alt-country, bluegrass, jam band, and pop audiences. No matter the perspective Ôø? the vitality and honesty of the performances on She Waits for Night Ôø? make Uncle Earl one of the most exciting and promising new bands to emerge in any genre.
