8pm - The Luddites $5
The Luddites are an 11 piece folk orchestra that redefines the image of
acoustic music. The Luddites take their name from a rabble of desperate
English textile workers who, in the earliest days of the Industrial
Revolution, took to smashing factory machines in an effort to preserve
the ideals of humanity and craftsmanship. Today's Luddites are no less
rebellious, shunning electronic trappings and embracing all things wood.
Equipped with an arsenal of string'd, skinned, and reedy things they
play original music that mix-matches folk, rock, zydeco, calypso,
klezmer, ragtime, and Bourbon Street swing. They are often silly,
sobering, always very, very entertaining.
