Old Salt Union & The Lowest Pair at Climbers Festival

Friday 7/13
Hosted by Old Salt Union
At the Lander Bar

Tuscaloosa –
Holding On –
You Can Call Me Al:
Where I Stand:

A great band is more than the proverbial sum of its parts, and in the pursuit of becoming something that can cut through the clutter of YouTube stars and contest show runner-ups, a great roots music band must become a way of life. Less likely to rely on production or image, they’ve got to connect with their audience only through the craftsmanship of their songs, the energy they channel on the stage and the story that brings them together.
Old Salt Union is a string band founded by a horticulturist, cultivated by classically trained musicians, and fueled by a vocalist/bass player who is also a hip-hop producer with a fondness for the Four Freshmen. It is this collision of styles and musical vocabularies that informs their fresh approach to bluegrass and gives them an electric live performance vibe that seems to pull more from Vaudeville than the front porch.

Friday 7/13

DK & The Crue plays 9:00-1:30am led by
vocalist-poet-guitarist Daniel Kosel whose stunning originals and covers are known within a new genre self-styled as “Crues Music”.
