The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers (Southwest Watson Sweethearts opening)
The clothes don't tell you everything: The Sapsuckers may take their sartorial style from a combination of "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" and "Bonnie and Clyde" but they are in fact true masters of traditional old-time fiddle tunes and tight vocal harmonies, including country, vaudeville, hits of the 1920s and 1930s, and original songs and tunes. Nikki Grossman and Joe Hart are known for the light touch and sense of humor they bring to their performance. Welcome the Sapsuckers to their Focal Point return!
Ryan Koenig (of Pokey LaFarge, Rum Drum Ramblers, and Lonesome Cowboy Ryan and His Dried-Up Teardrops) plays leads on harmonica, fiddle, dobro, and banjo, and Kellie Everett (of The Hooten Hallers, Loot Rock Gang, and the Sidney Street Shakers) holds down the rhythm on guitar. The duo's main strength lies in their timeless vocal harmonies, well-paired vocal timbres, and memorable melodies. Theircatalog is greatly influenced by, a fondness for things forgotten in time, pride in their beloved St. Louis and the midwest, and a love of classic country and early American music.
