For the 2nd night of our “Busking in the Hippie Corral” we have some more great acts, so don’t forget to drop them a few bucks. Musicians are struggling right now, and we all know how important live music is.
Here’s the line-up:
8- Scarlet Water Duo
9- Chocolate George Music
10- Midwest Rhythm Exchange
It’s #FREE #livemusic and it’s some of Indy’s best! Can’t beat that. See everyone Saturday.
The Midwest Rhythm Exchange
The band is currently composed of Kevin Lee Guthridge (Blue Hound Underground) on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, Matt Koher (Blueprint Music, Maple Trio) on violin, Doug Sauter (Blueprint Music, Maple Trio) on mandolin, and Aaron Ransdell (Tonos Triad) on the upright bass.
The band was founded in an attempt to bring traditional gypsy swing and other acoustic styles to a modern audience. Through a combination of progressive arrangements, experienced musicianship, and inspired compositions they deliver a high-energy show that finds a way to connect traditional music to a modern ‘jukebox audience’.
