acoustic guitar/banjo needed

Postby sevenyearsdown » October 14th, 2013, 5:17pm

We are an old time band in need of an acoustic guitar player, banjo player, or someone who can handle doing both. Vocals are also needed, though not a deal breaker. We play a mix of early american old time music, bluegrass, folk, jugband, country blues, etc. Think Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, OCMS, Devil Makes Three, etc. We do not play that silly pop banjo music all over the radio today like Lumineers or Mumford and Sons.

We've already put a few gigs under our belt, but had to part ways with out current guitarist. It's a working band situation, so you would be expected to do some home work on your own and come prepared to practice. We don't have time to teach someone the songs or the genre. A general appreciation and knowledge for old time music is needed.

There isn't a drummer, so you have be able to keep time and rhythm by listening to the other instruments in the band. Currently have the ability to play the following with the four of us: guitar, mandolin, trumpet, dulcimer, harmonica, fiddle, upright bass, melodica. The song list is about 20 deep right now, a mix of mostly traditional songs and some originals.

Must have transportation, a functioning instrument, and the ability to make it to practice at least once a week until things are running smoothly.

No stoners, dead head, jam band guys, etc. ... 1728700895
