There's much more to Whiskey Shivers
than one of the most disturbingly brilliant band names we've ever heard. Although their moniker hints at casual drinkers' most dreaded post-gulp gag, the band's fervent bluegrass music evokes spirits of a much less regrettable nature. This Austin-based quintet is the centerpiece of this week's edition of Good Music Wednesday where we take you down to Texas for their vigorous performance at The Good Music Club
Born in a woodpile in the twilight months of ought nine, we came from all corners of the US looking to do one thing: to knock the dust off roots music.
Upright bass, fiddle, washboard, banjo and guitar; a traditional arrangement for some not so traditional music.
Along with our many originals, we breathe new life into old standards, always searching for the true soul of this country's earliest means of hoein' down! Whether that means finding the groove in a song like Cluck Ol' Hen, or the sheer joy of Rollin In My Sweet baby's Arms, we never stop looking for that elusive Appalachian spirit.
Whether it's a foot-stompin hootenanny you're after, or nice two-step or even music to lose consciousness to, we've got it covered!
