Bradford Lee Folk & the Bluegrass Playboys
Wednesday, July 15, 7pm
Nashville's Bradford Lee Folk makes good-times bluegrass that's not afraid to punch your gut. If you want to reach Bradford Lee Folk, call him after two pm, Nashville time. That’s because before two o’clock, he’s out on his tractor in the fields of an organic farm outside the city, farming for a living. After 2pm, Brad heads back into Nashville to set up for a long night of burning bluegrass and rootsy Americana with his band The Bluegrass Playboys. That juxtaposition between the gritty dirt of the country and the glitz of Nashville lies at the heart of Bradford Lee Folk's music.
