The Get Rites

  • Aired: 09/26/2008
  • 28:32
  • Rating: TV-G
From the Twin Cities and in the tradition of the late Gram Parsons and Uncle Tupelo, the Get Rites make twang with a bang. With Snare drum, cymbal, guitar and double bass, the stripped-down trio makes a big country sound. Dirty Linen Magazine describes the group as, "masters of the no-excuses, no-holds-barred, folk-blues-roots, Americana music."
