Charlotte-Based Sinners & Saints to Play Special Happy Hour Set at Wilbert’s

A Charlotte-baed duo, Sinners & Saints — singer-songwriter Perry Fowler on acoustic guitar and harmonica and Mark Baran on upright bass, banjo and harmonies — plays old-timey music like Louvin Bros.

The band’s harmony vocals sound especially sharp on its latest album, On the Other Side. The sparse opening tune, “Up Like the Sun, Down Like the Rain,” shows off their ability to harmonize. Since forming in 2011, the duo has opened for acts such as Flogging Molly, Shovels and Rope, Robert Earl Keen, Dexter Romweber, St Paul & the Broken Bones and many others.

The group will roll into town next week to play a special happy hour set at Wilbert’s from 5:45 to 7:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 17. Admission is free.
