The Singing Saw

Print More

The Asheville-based band Blind Boy Chocolate and the Milk Sheiks played a set of traditional American music from blues to ragtime downtown at Amplified Art in City Market. Raleigh native Dwight Hawkins played the singing saw–a specially crafted wood-handled saw played with a violin bow. It was a rare indoor performance by the Milk Shieks, who more often can be found playing street-side in cities around the country. They played as a part of Raleigh’s Sparkcon, but quickly beat out of town to play Kentucky’s “Jug-band Jubilee.”
