On one level, Low Cut Connie seems far removed from folk music. There wasn't an acoustic guitar in sight during the band's Philadelphia Folk Festival performance. But its straight-ahead rock 'n' roll sound, propelled by Adam Weiner's piano, certainly puts it next in line of a tradition of classic bar bands.

Weiner hails from New Jersey, while his guitar-playing partner, Dan Finnemore, is from Birmingham, England. Their different sensibilities meet in a raucous, joyful sound that got festivalgoers on their feet and dancing.
