Poor Old Shine
Foot stomping, mind racing, fast flinching music - day in and day out, Poor Old Shine is the Roots- Americana collaboration of Chris Freeman and Will Leet. They travel with an assortment of instruments including guitars, banjos, pump organ, string bass, cello, a swarm of harmonicas, and a yard-sale-scrap-metal drum set. It’s old songs with a new feel, banjos with paint peeled, shoes with holes and treadless soles, and music that is real.
Poor Old Shine’s music is rooted in the folk and Appalachian mountain music tradition. They have been compared to The Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, Langhorne Slim, and The Low Anthem because of the changing instrumentation and harmonies.
Poor Old Shine also features musicians Antonio Alcorn (Mandolin, guitar), Scott Thomas McColl (Upright Bass), Malachai Madden (Cello, Guitar), & David Norman (Organ). The band has performed at Toads Place, The Space and Sully’s. http://pooroldshine.com/
