Featuring Bo Carper (New Monsoon) & Lebo (ALO)
w/ special guests Eric McFadden (Artist-at-Large) & Mimi Naja (Fruition)

No need to like Metal (or Hoedowns) to love this Playshop! Join Lebo and Bo Carper as they peel back the outer layers of "Metal" and focus on the "Heavy"; the deep musical character of this profoundly influential genre. Acoustic (not necessarily bluegrass or folk) interpretations of the earliest and heaviest cuts of all time from legends like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Soundgarden and many more, will make skeptics & headbangers alike feel that they're hearing this music for the first time. The approach will be lighthearted at times, but by no means a parody. And will take the opportunity to pay respect to the late Chris Cornell, whose soaring voice took the heaviest songs to the highest of emotional heights.
