Young Heirlooms @ Uncle Slayton’s

Wednesday, Dec. 12

Uncle Slayton’s
1017 E. Broadway
$7; 8 p.m.

If you haven’t gotten folked lately, Uncle Slayton’s offers this four-act evening titled, well, “Get Folked.” Featuring two acts from Cincinnati and two from down the street, it’s a mostly polite evening of adult entertainment. Queen City folk-rockers Young Heirloom and blues-rockers Taylor Alexander meet up with local singer/songwriter Joel Henderson and Nellie Pearl, a supergroup of musicians from bands such as Blunt Honey and Local Villains, among others, in what could only be described as a sensuous orgy of musical expression. And if you doubt Young Heirloom’s charisma, uniqueness, nerve or talent, the band’s bio describes them as “original music at its best — beautiful, lulling and honest,” and “a new take on the evolution of folk music.” —Peter Berkowitz
