The Freight Hoppers, one of the nation’s premier string bands, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28, in a concert to benefit the Habersham Community Theater.
The concert also will feature local artists, American Honey.
The Freight Hoppers play hard-driving old-time music with an emotional, raw excitement that mixes past and present. Inspired by string band music of the 1920s and ’30s, they have been entertaining crowds of fans at festivals and music halls around the country.
The band, based out of the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, features the fiddle and banjo combo of David Bass and Frank Lee, along with Isaac Deal on guitar and Bradley Adams on upright bass. Lee and Deal provide the vocals.
