The Down Hill Strugglers Play Old-Time String Music in Champaign


The New Lost City Ramblers participated in the old-time music revival back in the 60s and influenced countless artists after them over a 40-plus-year career. The Brooklyn-based Down Hill Strugglers is one such collection of artists. Presenting “the authentic sound of old-time music to a new generation,” The Down Hill Strugglers will come to Champaign for a concert Friday night, and I’ll talk with one of their members on the Thursday edition of “Live and Local.”
