Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band
Big damn sound, perhaps, considering that Reverend Peyton is one of those dobro players schooled in the Piedmont styling made popular by another reverend, Gary Davis. But in the Big Damn Band version, the picking comes out sounding like equal parts Robert Johnson and Eric Sardinas. The two couldn’t sound more different, but somehow Reverend Peyton pulls it all together. Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants also perform.
- Cost: $12
