The New York City Slickers, an 8 piece high energy, progressive bluegrass band with a Big Apple style, will perform at Millsaps College on Tuesday, October 9 at 7pm. The group was formed by two Millsaps grads from Jackson, Annie Chadwick and Faser Hardin, and their daughter, Abigail Hardin. Founded in 2008, New York City Slickers combines the wailing tight harmonies and talents of three singers with the hard driving sound of five musically gifted musicians on banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, bass and accordion. The sound is a synthesis of traditional bluegrass, zydeco, Delta blues and country pop, resulting in theatrically inspired, toe tappin’, one of a kind, rocking fun music.
The program will be held in the Ford Academic Complex Recital Hall on the Millsaps College campus. Admission is $10 for the general public, $5 for students.
