SATURDAY, MARCH 26

THE SOUTH CAROLINA BROADCASTERS, KATHARINE WHALEN

This Saturday double bill delivers varied approaches to distinctly American music. The South Carolina Broadcasters—headliners who are, in fact, from North Carolina—recall the earliest days of bluegrass. As they pick and sing in delightful harmony around a single microphone, you'll hear plenty of familiar favorites from the Carter Family and more among the band's originals. Opener Katharine Whalen threw back to hot jazz of the twenties and thirties as a founding member of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, but she's spent the past few years developing a solo foothold based in atavistic rock 'n' roll. She offers an intriguing contrast to the Broadcasters' staunch traditionalism, a welcome break from bills that stack artists that are too like-minded. —Allison Hussey
