And given how much fun Airhorn Slim is to listen to, it’s worth giving each of these tunes a few listens. Eagle-eyed viewers may recognize Airhorn Slim from other Busk Break videos, such as Balkan Death Grip’s “Men … Continue reading Airhorn Slim’s upbeat charm on resonator guitar and kazoo

Blake Abyss and Amy Alvey’s improv jam on Hang and violin

Watching this video of violinist Amy Alvey and Hang drum player Blake “Blake Abyss” Larson perform together, you’d probably expect to hear that the duo had been busking together for weeks, if not years.

The Slaughter Brothers Band perform their untitled, bluegrass-inspired tune

By their own admission, the Slaughter Brothers have been playing in Asheville for the last few months largely because they were “stranded” here after playing a birthday party. But they don’t seem too bummed about where fate has landed them, and now they’re in town “doing their thing.” Raised in Dayton, Ohio, and professionally based … Continue reading The Slaughter Brothers Band perform their untitled, bluegrass-inspired tune
