Backyard Tea

BandAmericanaClassic Rock

Classic Power Pop descended from the Beatles with Americana, blues, and folk inflections....


Jim Booth and Steve Littlejohn were the principal composers for one of Greensboro's first important original music bands, 1970's power pop darlings Backyard Tea. They are now back performing as an acoustic duo. Their sets include both versions of some of their 1970's material as well as newer compositions that reflect their current music interests. So expect some acoustic rock, folk, and blues - and mainly, expect irresistible melodies and clever lyrics that reflect the same influences that inspired groups like Badfinger, Big Star, The Raspberries, and other second generation power pop/classic rock bands....For more info visit\/backyardtea
