Rhythm Roots: Nostalgia and Tradition just walked in and can’t decide if they like the music enough to stay. Rhythm Roots is a new spin on the hybrid-genres between rhythm and blues and country music. City life meets country life, electric meets acoustic, whisky meets glass, and that’s just the first music video. Rhythm roots is migratory music, bringing the rural to the main stage.
With a big smile and wild dreadlocks, Bing Futch kicks off every Rhythm Roots show with a buoyant energy that is inviting and energizing. As a player of the Appalachian mountain dulcimer, Native American flute, and ukulele, he definitely navigates the varied waters of traditional and modern Americana with passion, and a genuinely huge heart for sharing music with an audience.
