The Howlin’ Brothers, a Nashville-based band with tradition roots and modern taste, is bringing their HOWL tour to Dahlonega this weekend.
Doors open at 6 p.m. with the show beginning at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9, at The Crimson Moon Cafe at 24 N. Park St.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 Friday.
Band members said they are better described as Americana, where multiple genres are the norm and boundaries are not.
“I think we’re more willing to take risks with arrangements and style,” band member Ben Plasse said. “We’re not afraid to do anything we can pull off that, that we think is groovy.”
The Howlin’ Brothers are not siblings or even relatives, but they share a house outside of Music City and own a pitbull/border collie/bird dog “blend” named Cora Lee.
Band members include: Ian Craft of Homer, N.Y.; Jared Green of Bayfield, Wis.; and Plasse of Lexington, Mass. Craft plays the banjo, mandolin and fiddle. Green plays guitar and the harmonica. Plasse plays the upright bass and banjo.
All three attended Ithaca College, where Craft studied percussion performance and Green and Plasse majored in classical guitar and recording.
