Made up of an all-star cast of some of Baltimore’s strongest Americana musicians, Rusty Sal is a sure-fire good time for lovers of classic country. The groove is provided by acclaimed upright bassist Alex Lacquement (Bumper Jacksons, Charm City Junction), the twang comes from the impressive lead guitar work of Lucas Chohany (Nick & Luke), and sky high Dolly Parton-esque harmonies from singer-songwriter Letitia VanSant top it all off. After getting together as friends for a few years to practice singing three-part harmonies, the trio decided to book a few gigs with a drummer, which soon blossomed into Baltimore’s popular honky-tonk two-stepping nights. Cameos are often made by other stalwarts of the scene, including Warren Blair on fiddle (George Jones), Dave Hadley on pedal steel (Bumper Jacksons), and drums by EJ Shaull-Thompson (The Bellevederes, Caleb Stine & the Brakemen) or Dan Samuels (Bumper Jacksons). The band aims to bring a new generation of fans to the songwriting of Hank Williams, Buck Owens, Loretta Lynn, George Jones and other old favorites. Get out on the dance floor and join Rusty Sal in the renaissance of classic country in the mid-Atlantic.
