Rhythm & Brews: Doc Pappa & The Renegade Ramblers
June 11 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Doc Pappa & The Renegade Ramblers take the stage for the rhythm and brews series.
The Renegade Ramblers infuse blues into traditional bluegrass and gospel, driven by David “Oz” Nauman’s strong Scruggs-style banjo and anchored by stand-up bassist Joe Dorsch, who also plays pennywhistle on the Irish instrumentals the group performs.
The trio will be joined by Chad Darou, an award-winning multi-instrumentalist originally from Florida and then the Watertown area of New York. Darou plays dobro, mandolin, banjo and guitar and played a major role in producing both of the group’s CDs. Prior to fronting the Renegades, Darou and Pappalardo played in a group called The Crop Circle Agents, whose solo CD, Aliens Among Us, is named for a track that tries to explain the mystery of alien visitation.
