Lou Wamp has assembled an array of talented pickers and singers to augment his virtuosic slide guitar playing, resulting in the formation of Swing Shift, a group that goes from western swing, to Americana & jazz, to new acoustic sounds. Adept precision and renditions will have you tapping your toes, if not outright up and dancing. An infectious sound that crowds can’t seem to get enough of harkens back to the Texas tearooms and dance halls of the ’40s, yet remains forever fresh and new.
Lou Wamp & Swing Shift
7 p.m., Friday, August 2
Nightfall Music Series, Miller Plaza, 850 Market St.
