Saturday April 28, 8:00 pm

Honolulu based Discord & Rye is a rowdy "whiskey-grass" band that's dedicated to the history and future of Americana music. They'll perform music selections that borrow from bluegrass, folk, blues and rock genres.

Out of Athens, Georgia, the Broken String Band describes themselves as a group that "...excites your senses with thrashing banjos, iconic harmonies, stompy percussion, sentimental lyricism, and a live energy that provides appropriate extremes of ups and downs for a show that is as electrifying as it is moving."
