IBMA Emerging Artist Winners The Po Ramblin’ Boys Coming to Sarasota
At a time when most people feel constantly distracted by technology and barraged by the news, authenticity and straightforward honesty are paramount. There’s something about the music of The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys that cuts right through the noise of the world and speaks plainly to the soul. Formed in the Smoky Mountains, The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys are at once exactly what you would expect and not at all what you would expect from a tattooed East Tennessee Bluegrass outfit.
Winners of the 2018 IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year Award, the Po Ramblin’ Boys will be playing the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Friday, March 15 at 8pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 day of show. Advance tickets are available by calling 1-800-838-3006 or online at wslr.org.
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys’ energetic and unapologetically vintage sound points to the golden era of bluegrass music, all the while appealing to a fresh audience hungry for authenticity. Whether it is the band’s rhinestone string ties, tattoo sleeves, cowboy hats, or hard-hitting bluegrass sound, heads turn wherever they go. It’s music for the fans of Monroe, Martin, Scruggs and Stanley but also for fans who discovered bluegrass in the age of Billy Strings, Trampled By Turtles and Greensky Bluegrass. Mixing in healthy doses of their own original material, The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys are a breath of fresh air on the roots music scene today.
