Jef Chandler & Charles Hedgepath (of Bad Popes), 9-midnight, FREE
February 28 @ 9:00 pm - March 1 @ 12:00 am| FREE
Based in Greenville, SC, The Bad Popes is comprised of Charles Hedgepath (guitar, vocals, and mandolin), Mike Bagwell (steel guitars and vocals), Jef Chandler (guitar and vocals), Chris Garrett (bass), and Kevin Heuer (drums). Playing original material written by Chandler and Hedgepath as well as a smorgasbord of covers ranging from Graham Parsons and Willie Nelson to The Beatles and The Ramones, The Popes are veterans and representatives of many bands. Musically, the band could be called an Americana band, but that would be selling them short. In one evening of a Bad Popes performance, you may hear Texas Swing in the manner of Bob Wills, power pop, country like Merle Haggard, rock songs, folk, bluegrass and much more.
