      Music Three-Legged Dog

      Live music performance by James Sallis’ band:

      Three-Legged Dog

      Three-Legged Dog is today’s version of the string bands that existed all about the country in the Thirties and Forties, groups that played everything – oldtime mountain music, blues, ballads, devotional and dance music, jazz, pop tunes of the day – on acoustic instruments. The Dog takes to the stage with anywhere from sixteen to twenty instruments including multiple guitars, banjos, mandolins, accordion, bouzouki, harmonica, stand-up and fretless electric bass, Dobro and Hawaiian guitar, cello, and fiddle.

      Their background and influences are individually as diverse as the music they play together.

      Ant Bee, classically trained, plays cello, stand-up and fretless 5-string bass, and from time to time picks up an accordion.

      Odie Piker, whose background is in rock, is a fine songwriter, moving freely among guitar, mandolin, bazooki, and banjo and taking on most of the lead singing.

      Jim Sallis has behind him forty years of country blues and bluegrass, as well as years of playing steel guitar in Texas country bands; with the Dog he plays guitar, Dobro, mandolin, harmonica, banjo and fiddle.

      In a single set you may hear Civil War-era songs, blues, vintage country, Cajun, calypso, gospel, jazz, swing, and originals that sound like all those.
