Craicdown | American Tobacco Campus | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Fri., Sept. 2, 6 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

Craicdown's music is a melting pot of flavors ranging from Irish jigs and reels to Brazilian choro and bossa nova. Surprising for a Chapel Hill trio, but of course, there are plenty of American traditions at play as well, which is apparent in its inventive medley of old-time fiddle tunes and an austere reworking of the Hank Williams standard "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." With proficiency on a slew of instruments, Craicdown wows with its technical skill and versatility. The well-traveled unit turns the serene American Tobacco lawn into something far more lively at 6 p.m. for free, in the latest installment of the Back Porch Music on the Lawn series. —Spencer Griffith
