Clover Point Drifters
Clover Point Drifters came through The Roxy last month, playing two sets of uniquely west coast bluegrass to a packed house. At the post gig party, the guitar player asked me if I'd enjoyed the show and (quoting Riley Puckett) I told him it was "ragged but right" which was the highest compliment I could've payed. Their repertoire was inspired, eclectic and inventive within the genre. My fave? A knocked out version of Randy Newman's Rider In The Rain.
