Bloodkin Live at Paddlefest
May 24, 2019 @ 10:00 pm$10 – $15
Bloodkin, who formed in the early 1990s, are best known for their influence on Widespread Panic, who have covered a bunch of Bloodkin tunes. As revealed on BABY, THEY TOLD US WE WOULD RISE AGAIN, the bands share a bit of Southern-rock influence, but at its heart the Bloodkin sound is more akin to alt-country contemporaries like Son Volt, or even relative youngsters Cross Canadian Ragweed. The Crazy Horse crunch of the guitars and the willingness to let a groove develop slowly mark the band as distinctly ’70s-influenced, but the thoughtful songwriting that sets them apart from the country-rock masses isn’t tied to any one era.
