The Delta String Band is an acoustic band playing music “the old school way.” Hailing from Greenville, Mississippi, the group consists of: Charles Sullivan, guitar and vocals; Will Coppage, banjo and vocals; David Morgan, mandolin; and Cody Ruth, bass and vocals. The rich, cultural heritage of the Mississippi Delta is known for producing talented musicians, and these players are no exception.
The Delta String Band is best described as an Americana band. They play a variety of styles, from folk and bluegrass to straight-up country. With influences like bluegrass great Ralph Stanley, folk master John Prine, pure country kings Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, and even genre-fusing groups like the Grateful Dead, they bring their own flavor to the music they play. “The old school way” to them, means playing music in its truest, purest, stripped-down form. As their sepia-toned band photo suggests, their sound is raw and rootsy.
Opening the show will be R&B duo Variety.
