Charleston-based quartet ContraForce is the high-energy experimental folk project of fiddler Andrae Raffield, percussionist/handpan/saxophonist Joey Dorwart, guitarist Jimi “Two Nails” Peirano, and vocalist Karin Mcquade. Their take on old standards and new originals is based on the Celtic and Appalachian folk styles normally featured at contra dances, with an intoxicating addition of Middle Eastern and heavy rock influence that gives their sound a psychedelic feel. The Niño’s Creamery truck will be on site serving an assortment of ice creams and Buzz Pops.
Blankets and chairs are welcome as no seating will be provided.
