The Low Water String Band, a quartet formed in Lander in 2011, will play the Basin City Arts Center on Saturday, March 3 at 7 p.m. Low Water, a bluegrass band featuring Jared Scott on banjo, Joe LeFevere on mandolin/fiddle, Annie Scott on upright bass, and Stuart Cerovski on rhythm guitar, share song-writing duties and their different styles blend together for a unique sound. Low Water touches a local chord.
The Low Water recorded and released their first self titled album of 11 original songs in 2015. Recently this independent band released a new single titled: “Wyoming Wind.” Written by banjo player Jared Scott, the band worked with Brian Hensien to film a video. All of the footage was shot on a single October day and features Wyoming’s landscapes. The band is currently recording new material to be released as several EPs in 2018.
Their unique, “Wyoming Indie-Bluegrass” style has gained them audiences across the Rocky Mountain region. The Low Water was recognized by a grant in 2015, through the Wyoming Arts Council, called the IM Tour, which subsidizes touring in and outside of Wyoming. Festival performances include Whatfest, Evanston Bluegrass Festival, NoWoodstock, and the Big Horn Mountain Festival. The band was fortunate enough to open for Lake Street Dive in 2016 at their Lander Live performance. The Low Water joined a traveling Wyoming music showcase in 2017, “The WyoAmericana Caravan.” The sixth year of the tour included bands Screen Door Porch, Jalan Crossland, J Shogren, Dauphin, and the Canyon Kids. The tour travelled and performed in Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Utah and Idaho.
Performances in 2018 are booked at The Gryphon Theater in Laramie, High Water Hoedown in Encampment, NIC Fest in Casper, Brewer’s Fest In Cheyenne, Donkey Creek Music Festival in Gillette, gigs in Lander and Riverton, the Bear Trap Festival in Riverside, and Whatfest.
Tickets will be available at the door for $15 for adults, $5 for kids 10 and under. This performance is made possible by the Basin City Arts Center and is supported in part by the Wyoming Music Initiative and the IMTour Program. The BCAC is a nonprofit organization developing and supporting the arts in our local communities.
