Billy Yank & Johnny Reb – Basin Park

September 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

From folksongs and ballads about outlaws and moonshiners, to country blues and sacred songs, this duo makes simple, honest music that feels right at home on a street corner or around a campfire. Connecticut native Keith Symanowitz and Arkansan John Severs combine skillful fingerstyle blues guitar reminiscent of Mississippi, John Hurt and Merle Travis, soulful singing, and a mixture of washboard and spoons, clawhammer banjo, and percussive dance. In spite of ourselves, Billy Yank & Johnny Reb remind us that we’re all one big human family on the dance floor. The duo is joined by the bassist Jerry Bone from Arkansas’ own Lockhouse Orchestra. Bone is a founding member of The Famous Unknowns, the first house band from B.B. King’s on Beale Street in Memphis, TN., and former bassist for David Lynn Jones
