Southern Ground Music and Food Festival: Day Two

Once day two arrived, I felt like a pro. My routine was down, even to the timing of the shortest drink lines 😉 Perhaps it was that everyone attended the Saturday show and needed Sunday to recover. Who knows, but this was a music-filled Sunday Funday for the ears.

The_Archetypes

The Archetypes opened day two with a rockin’ bang. It’s tough playing the early spot on festival days, where the hungover patrons meander in later, but the crowd was loud and proud for these Charleston music veterans.

What can I say about these amazing ladies? Strong pipes, strong hat game, and strong messages of love will bring all the music-lovers to their yard.

Packway_Handle_Band

Packway Handle Band, bluegrass quintet, brought a jovial sound to the afternoon. There’s something about the sounds of a banjo, fiddle, and mandolin that really get a party started.

A_Thousand_Horses

It was a warm homecoming for South Carolina boys, A Thousand Horses. They’ve come a long way since playing local spots Windjammer and Pour House.  Everyone should start learning their songs now because they are going to have a long residency in country music.

Tedeschi_Trucks_Band

My last show of the day was Tedeschi Trucks Band, and probably one of my favorites. Derek and Susan are freaking talented musicians, so putting them together creates a musical nirvana. I actually stood several feet away from them in the artists compound waiting for my interview, and that was the first time I truly got emotional being in their presence. It’s always a pleasure to hear and see them live.

This was an amazing weekend of music and a huge thanks to Fox 24 and Shore Fire Media for giving me this opportunity.
