GUEST,Sorcha What do you wear when you perform? (71* d) RE: What do you wear when you perform? 24 Jan 00


Depends on where we're playing, and what...I play in an Old Time String Band, and we do lots of different things. When we play historical re-enactments, of course we are in period clothes, @1879. For ordinary stuff, like town Summerfests, we all usually wear decent jeans, and usually some sort of light denim blue tops. We don't try to co-ordinate, but usually end up wearing the same type stuff. For the Eastern Star ladies, we will submit to long denim skirts and silk shirts, and for stage gigs, we tend to dress up a little more than for the Hay Bale Float in the parade. We once did an "I Hate Winter" Hawaiian theme party, and we all wore shorts and wild shirts ( it was only 20F that nite!) I think clean and neat is more important than exactly what performers have on. I too, tend to be put off by the severe "grunge" look and think that looking at performers clothing detracts from the music aspect of a performance, but the clothing definitely needs to sort of blend with the style of music. Can you see Grandpa Jones in a tux????
