Hot Rize with special guest Red Knuckles & The Trail Blazers

Hot Rize performances are almost as rare as their studio recordings, as each band member has a highly successful solo career, and PineCone is honored to host Hot Rize in Raleigh during their limited fall 2011 tour. And thanks to The Busy Bee Cafe in Raleigh - they'll be offering a 10% discount on your meal if you bring your ticket stub to eat there before or after the show!

Boo Hanks

James Arthur "Boo" Hanks is an 83-year-old acoustic blues guitarist with roots in the Piedmont string band and blues traditions. He saved money for his first guitar by selling packets of garden seeds, picking out the same old-time songs he heard his father playing after long days in the tobacco field. As a young man in the 1940s, Hanks earned pocket change playing guitar at barn dances with his cousins accompanying him on mandolin and spoons.
