Jammin' with Nourish: Music by The Great Whiskey Rebellion & Boston World Quartet

Event Date: 
Saturday, July 13, 2013 - 10:00pm
Venue: 

Nourish Boston Presents:

The Great Whisky Rebellion is a high-energy band that combines traditional Irish, Appalachian folk, and Klezmer music with driving rock rhythms and instrumentation. It is a band crafted and clarified by the blending of opposites. We are both modern and traditional.

The music takes traditional folk songs and styles and smashes them over the anvil of Rock 'n Roll. It is dance music with grit. TGWR is equally at home sharing the stage with folk and roots acts as with any rock and metal bands. Our music is a combination of heavy shredding and acoustic instruments, heavy drums and danceable melodies. 

With a classically trained fiddle, jazzy funkalicious rhythm guitar, heavy bass, and driving drums, the band draws from an eclectic range of ethnic influences, causing the crowd to dance to the music that sounds both highly original and yet strangely familiar.
