Bluegrass, jazz and blues performers to visit Ohio University-Zanesville

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (Oct. 27, 2004) -- The Real World String Band will create the energy of an old-time dance as they perform at Ohio University-Zanesville this month. Their tight vocal harmony of Bluegrass singing, the infusion of American jazz and blues styles, and lyrics that reflect the politics of a changing South is an undeniable force in the folk music scene.

Influenced by traditional and old-time music with a touch of country, swing, blues, and jazz, Reel World's soulful songwriting and instrumental virtuosity make for American roots music with a rare fire and authenticity.

The Reel World String Band will perform Thursday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. during the Women of Appalachia Conference. For more information, contact the Office of Continuing Education at (740) 588-1401 or e-mail ouzconted@ohio.edu.
