Shovels & Rope and an energetic two piece hailing from Charleston, South Carolina.  Relying on two old guitars, a couple of harmonicas, and a drum kit they play some of the best Americana ever to grace your ears.  One can hardly contain the amount of energy that flows through your bones when listening to a live performance by this quirky duo, the only release it jump to your feet and dance along.  Touring off their latest release O’ Be Joyful the band has been a darling of KEXP. 

The duo played a sassy set this past May at Sasquatch 2013. Those of you not fortunate enough to catch the young bucks of Americana’s last Northwest performance, It is highly recommended that you head on over to the Neptune on October 9th before they take the world by storm.
