Songbob How many of us play in a traditional band. (102* d) RE: How many of us play in a tradional band. 18 Mar 99

Well, I'm in a trio called "Sidekicks." We're what we term a "frontier and western" band, which means we play songs of the frontiers of the US and Australia. We are NOT a "sons of the pioneers" nor a "Bob Wills" kind of band, but oriented toward traditional and "in the tradition" songs. Three voices, a gazillion instruments (guitars, five-string banjo, mandolin, 12-string, dobro, harmonicas, mandolin-banjo, guitar-banjo, and autoharp come to mind) and lots of fun. We're a neighborhood band from the "folk music ghetto" of Silver Spring, MD.

Anyone wanting to hear us can come to our Sarutday night gig (Mar. 20) at the Potomac Overlook Nature Center in the Potomac Overlook Park on Marcy St. in Arlington, VA. Music starts around 8 PM, and there's a second band as well. Should be fun. Now, if only we weren't in competition with Rick Fielding's FSGW concert.... Hate to miss him, but a gig's a gig.
