The WDVX Big Plate live from Barley’s – 11/5 – Hatfields Heathens / Scott Ainslie

November 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Navigation

Hatfield’s Heathens came into being when Jack Hatfield met Jeff Nelson at a local bluegrass jam. After most of the other grassers left, Jack and Jeff jammed on several acoustic folk and soft rock classics. Jack was impressed by Jeff’s extensive repertoire and great vocal talent. A few jams later, Hatfield’s Heathens was born. This exciting new group plays Americana music. Members include Steve Potts on mandolin and vocals, Jeff Nelson on guitar and vocals, Jodi Harbin on bass and vocals, and Jack on banjo and harmony vocals. This group draws from folk, early and contemporary country, gospel, Irish, cowboy, blues, pop, swing, old time and bluegrass.

The Heathens appreciate good songwriting – they perform songs by the great singer-songwriters like Gordon Lightfoot, John Hartford, John Denver, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Townes Van Zant, Felice and Boudelaux Bryant and Ian Tyson. From Stephen Foster to Judy Garland to Snow Patrol – If you dig good American music you will dig something this band has to offer.

Steeped in traditional music from both sides of the color line, Scott Ainslie is a renowned acoustic blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He learned southern old-time ballads, banjo and fiddle from senior musicians in North Carolina and West Virginia and blues from his black elders in North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi: his roots are deep.
