The 502s are coming to Winnsboro! This Indie Folk/Americana six piece band cut their first CD two years ago. Since then they’ve continued to flourish. Based in Maitland, Florida, The 502s have just returned from a rousingly successful three weeks European Tour. Their four stop Texas tour – Austin, Tulsa, Winnsboro and San Antonio – will bring them to The Bowery Stage on Sept. 15.
Jim Willis, booker for The Bowery Stage, says, “With an 88 seat listening room, we can’t often put a six-piece band on the stage. But, for The 502s’ introductory Texas tour, this concert will be priced at our normal $15 general admission and $22 reserved seat at a bistro table – and we’ve got them on the Saturday night! We’re excited to be able to bring in this group on the front end of a journey that is definitely on the way up.”
Influenced by the early Mumford and Sons, crossed with the DIY attitude of The Lumineers and the communal, heartfelt tunes of The Head and the Heart, they will bring kick drum, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, accordion, trumpet and a lot of energy to the stage for a guaranteed good time! It’s about the music!
