AMERICANA FANS are in for quite a treat this weekend. Sandwiched between gigs in Athens and at the Gram Parsons Festival in Waycross, local faves The Accomplices (pictured) find time for a homecoming of sorts at the Jinx.
They remain one of the most beloved local acts, with a warm and spirited take on bluegrass/newgrass. A particularly endearing sweetness shines through, particularly in the lead vocals of Zach Smith and the tasteful fiddle of Colleen Heine. Their sophomore effort, A Truck, A Train, An Old Dump Pile, has quickly become an essential part of the Savannah music canon.
Technically they’re opening for another favorite local roots music combo, Waits & Co. But the uber-talented Jon Waits is quick to tell us, “We’re calling this show a double-bill as opposed to one band opening for the other. This is the first time our bands have shared the same stage, so all of us are really excited.”
And yes, expect some acoustic fireworks as the bands join forces for a couple of closing numbers together.
