Roosevelt Dime is a group with songs that are “catchy toe-tappers, real feel-good stuff,” according to Sing Out Magazine. With a name appropriated from a coin minted in 1946, it comes as no surprise that historical reference points underscore the music of the East Coast-based quartet Roosevelt Dime. This engaging brotherhood of musicians traces the rich tributaries of Americana — Blues, Bluegrass and New Orleans juke joint rhythm and blues, enduring genres newly electrified with a modern charge.
Among the instruments they play are banjo, electric and washtub, basses, percussion, and harmonica. The group will be at CHIRP on Tuesday, June 6, at 7 p.m. in the park, otherwise at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. Bring the whole family and grandma, too, for this one.
