Skifflebilly Night


Editorial Review

If, like Bob Seger, you've been craving old-time rock and roll, then you absolutely have to be at the Quarry House Tavern tonight. It's a rare reunion for the Old Line Skiffle Combo, a Maryland six-piece that plays traditional skiffle and rockabilly tunes using everything from a washboard to pedal-steel guitar to recreate the shufflin' '50s vibe. Taking turns on stage is the Flea Bops, one of the area's finest rockabilly acts, playing raw, straight-ahead Carl Perkins and Wynonie Harris covers and some edgy originals that could be the b-sides of some rare 45" if you didn't know any better. There's no cover charge, and the music starts at 9:30.
