Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line
Friday, August 22: 8pm
Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line are a traveling Carnival of acoustic Americana. The high energy, Nashville-based quintet perform Struthers' original story-songs with tight, three-part harmonies, claw-hammer banjo, guitar, bass, and drums. Struthers was catapulted into the spotlight when she led her band to a blue ribbon at the prestigious 2010 Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition (previous winners include Nickel Creek and The Dixie Chicks) and now her group is touring heavily in support of their latest release, Carnival. Struthers' songs are as steeped in American history, and as well crafted, as the beautiful vintage dresses she wears on stage.
