Eddie From Ohio with Gwen Hughes & the Retro Jazz Kats – Live at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center – June 19
Alt-folk/Americana band Eddie From Ohio (EFO) have independently released nine albums since their debut in 1991. For years the band toured regularly across the U.S., including several bigger folk/bluegrass music festivals including Philadelphia Folk, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (Hillsdale, N.Y.), Telluride Bluegrass Festival (Colo.) and Strawberry Music Festival (Calif.). The band has continued to tour, on a more limited basis, two decades since it all began.
Atlanta’s own Gwen Hughes and her Retro Jazz Kats open with their own tasty combination of jazz and pop standards. Hughes and her group have their own accolades – they’ve been voted Best Jazz/Swing Artist several years running by the readers of Creative Loafing.
