Friday Night Eclectic: Second String Band and Naseem Khuri Presented by Strathmore Friday, April 5, 2013 at 9:00 PM Mansion
In sports, the second string is a euphemism for second best. In music, the second string can be a reference to the American folk styles that creep out of the edges, beats and shadows of pop music. The Second String Band creates music that, while perhaps overlooked, has deep roots in our nation’s cultural identity; music that “speaks to the part of us that often lies below the surface but is longing to be unearthed” (Curator Magazine). The group has an undeniably powerful stage presence rooted in the roaring pathos of gospel street bands, performing songs that shout and whisper new meaning to traditions ranging from bluegrass, honky tonk, old time to country. Give us your poor, give us your sick…we’ll give them DC's the Second String Band. Also featuring Naseem Khuri.
