Victor Wooten Band/Jimmy Herring Band: Carolina Theatre, Durham NC 11/4.12

It’s a safe bet that very few of the folks who attended the Jimmy Herring Band/Victor Wooten Band double bill at Durham’s beloved Carolina Theater thought they would leave the building with any other performer’s name on their lips. As much as everyone marveled at the blatant and inspiring display of musicianship put on by Herring, Wooten, and their bands, no one could seem to stop talking about vocalist Krystal Peterson.

Picking & Fishing With Jimmy Herring

Having been an integral part of the Widespread Panic sound for the past six years, he has just popped out a new record, Subject To Change Without Notice, that captures a lot of different spirits: Jazz, blues, rock, mystical mind explorations and good-time hootenanny banjo picking fun. Although Herring takes a humble approach to his career, having played with everyone from the Allman Brothers to Bob Weir and Phil Lesh to Bruce Hampton, his guitar playing is bordering on being flawless. Just don’t try and call him a genius.

Review: Summer Camp Festival 2011

Words: Ryan Maher

Ah, Summer Camp. Last year you turned 10, this year you had quite the growth spurt at 11. Attendees quickly realized as they lined in that they’d be camping in tighter quarters with many new neighbors, as record numbers made their way to Chillicothe.

Thankfully mother nature gave us a break by ending the early rain in time for a dry load-in. The bands and crew weren’t so lucky at 5AM when they got their orders to evacuate due to severe weather. The rains had left some mud and chilly temps in their wake, but the upside would be no dust storms coating the bodies and lungs of the masses this year.

Jake Cinninger rolled out with his old South Bend band, Ali Baba’s Tahini for a fun set that featured the raunchy humor of Karl Engelmann paired with Jake’s guitar chops. Their cover of Tom Petty’s Running Down a Dream had a dark chant of “Smoke pot, Smoke pot, Everybody smoke pot” for kicks. Wavy Dave from Cornmeal also lent his jaw harp skills to a ditty.
