Revival Fest

Saturday, September 30th, 2017 - Georgia State Railroad Museum

MUSIC - BEER - BOURBON - SOUTHERN FARE 

Revival Fest is a modern low-country hoedown. It’s a celebration of things we love deeply in the South: a fresh roasted pig, a steaming hot low-country shrimp boil, locally crafted beers and spirits and a day filled with great music in a truly historic setting.

CHARLESTON, SC

Quiana Parler is a big-voiced, joyful singer; Charlton Singleton is a marvelous trumpeter, and Clay Ross stitches everything together with his introductions and unusual rhythm-guitar solos.

 "Gullah" / Jazz / Gospel/ Soul

“Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” In this spirit this Charleston, SC based quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston, SC are “rank” and fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.

South Carolina natives Quentin Baxter, Kevin Hamilton, Charlton Singleton, and Clay Ross first came together in 1998, fresh out of University, to formal seminal Charleston jazz quartet. Now, united by years apart and a deeper understanding of home, these accomplished artists have come together again, joined by one of the low-country’s most celebrated vocalists Quiana Parler, to revive a “Heartland of American Music” born in their own backyards.
