Salisbury, Md. – Saltwater Stringband will headline 1st Saturday this weekend at Roadie Joe’s in Downtown Salisbury, along with a special yoga session by Jordan Suber and furry friends from the Look Pretty Play Dirty Mobile Petting Farm.
Sponsored by The Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District and Park & Flea, 1st Saturday will be held on October 1, 2016 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Roadie Joe’s. This event is free and all ages are welcome and encouraged. Each attendee will receive a free 2016 1st Saturday T-shirt, depending on availability. One per person.
Saltwater Stringband is a high-energy, low-stress bluegrass group. Originally formed in late 2010, Nate Clendenen (guitar and vocals), Darin Engh (mandolin and vocals), and Bob Wilkinsin (bass and vocals), joined together over a love of bluegrass. Over the years they’ve been joined by some of the Mid-Atlantic’s best pickers, such as Sam Guthridge (banjo and vocals), Marc Dykeman (bass and vocals), Patrick McAvinue (fiddle and vocals), Lucy Cochran (fiddle and vocals), Joe Esham (dobro), Dave Sheperd (upright bass), Robert Made (banjo and vocals), and others. No matter what lineup they take the stage with, listeners should be ready for spirited performances at every show. The band draws on lifetimes of musical performance in a multitude of genres, yet their focus falls on bluegrass and old-time music as it is steeped in the aesthetics of the tidal waters of the Eastern Shore, creating a hybrid testament to true American roots music.
Jordan Suber, an instructor at Salisbury’s Soul Yoga Studio, will be providing a free yoga session from 5:30 to 6 p.m., while Saltwater Stringband takes a break.
