O’s Notes: If like ho-downs, this is your ticket. This trio, Dom Flemons (g, banjo, jug, harmonica, snare & vocals), Rhiannon Giddens (vocals, banjo & fiddle) and Justin Robinson (fiddle & vocals) brings us music from the mountains of the Carolinas. It’s square dance music, not our usual venue but we can attest to the musicianship. And Rhiannon’s voice is lovely especially on “Little Margaret”. There are thirteen others if this is your shtick.
