Dirtfoot plays all-ages show at Artspace, 710 Texas St, Friday, May 13, at 8 pm
Dirtfoot, whose unusual sounds are based in banjos and horns and pot-and-pan lids, will take the stage at 8:00 p.m. and play until 11 p.m. Dirtfoot engages their audiences to play along on percussion instruments they sometimes provide. All their etudes are original compositions. Members of the group are Matt Hazelton, singer and guitarist, Jay Bratlie on banjo, Eric Gardner on bass, Scott Gerardy on saxophone, Trey Jacobs on percussion, Lane Bayliss on drums, and Kathleen Carpenter on trumpet.
"Dirtfoot was invited to play Coolspace based on a jurying process similar to the one in place for the selection of visual art exhibited there. All acts submitting a proposal to play in Coolspace are judged by a panel composed of artist-peers from the SRAC Artist Roster," says Noma Fowler-Sandlin.
For more information on the Dirtfoot Concert or submitting a proposal to play or show at Coolspace or Artspace, please contact Noma, Coolspace Manager, at Artspace, 673-6535.
