What Folks Are Saying
The Cane Creek String Band is an authentic old-time string band from the Lowcountry in Charleston SC. Featuring fiddle, bass, guitar, and harmony vocals. They are bringing a high-energy, hard driving blend of upbeat Appalachian dance tunes and foot-stomping vocals that are wowing Lowcountry audiences. Combined experience of these musicians is over 60 years.
Their lineup consists of Bertha Booker - Fiddle;
Gina Perez- Stand Up Bass, vocals; Lane Gregory - guitar, vocals. If you like American traditional music - old time, bluegrass, Americana folk, you will love the Cane Creek String Band!
"If you’re keen on experiencing the crisp mountain air and cold springs of Appalachia sans the uphill drive, give the Cane Creek String Band a listen. With fiddle, upright bass, guitar, and June Carter-like vocals, the Charleston-based band will have you in a Smoky Mountain state of mind in no time. The band got together four years ago, and Lane Gregory sounds as if she just stepped out of Irish folklore and has a great grandfather who had a rag band back in the day. Bassist Gina Perez has a Cuban and Puerto Rican background that gives her an enviable edge when it comes to putting down rhythms. And self-taught fiddler Bertha Booker played throughout Ireland and now leads local Irish sessions. Put ’em all together along with a vintage dresscode, and it’s easy to see why the bluegrass folksters opened this summer for the Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Dom Flemons. The Cane Creek String Band is just one of several acts to join the Awendaw Barn Jam this week. "—Kelly Rae Smith/ Charleston City Paper
