The Big Dixie Swingers and The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers
Big Dixie swingers:
Winners of the 2017 band division of the MN Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Associations Americana Roots Contest, the Big Dixie Swingers of New Orleans, LA, are a traveling musical collective headed up by fiddler Aaron Gunn and banjoist Elizabeth Vargas.
The Big Dixie Swingers gig with an array of highly talented players depending on the area of the country theyre touring. While rooted in the style of traditional Western swing, the groups sound is also, as MBOTMA Magazine writes, infused with showtune-pop sensibility and the kind of presentation that can only be learned by performing for your supper on the streets of the Crescent City.
The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers:
The clothes dont 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!
