Corn & the Colonels 

When: Sat., May 26, 6-8 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

If not for the slew of modern cars parked in the nearby meadow, it may seem like a time warp when eclectic string band Corn and the Colonels brings its lively batch of retro tunes to Saxapahaw's rustic farmers market. The quintet of acoustic alchemists cooks up a cohesive mix with guitar, bass, fiddle, banjo, accordion, washboard and kazoo—plus a pair of lead singers with the versatility to go from sultry jazz vocals to sassy Spanish. The Durham group injects its spirit into a number of dated styles, from old-time and ragtime to swing and jump blues, all spiced with a hint of zydeco and Latin rhythms. —Spencer Griffith
