Bio

Brad Wofford, one of the main contributors to the indie rock band The Southern Sea, spent two years learning the Old Time style of Clawhammer banjo playing. Wanting to experiment more with live performance and acoustic instrumentation; becoming increasingly frustrated with sub-par PA systems and having to rely on electric amplification, he assembled The Scrips.

The Scrips are a four piece string band with an indie-rock heart; writing original music inspired by Old-Time, Folk & Bluegrass. From darkened Mountain Modal banjo to high-lonesome voices, The Scrips are raw acoustic music with mythical Appalachian origins.

New music played in a forgotten genre. Some songs are lively and square-dance-able and others are almost trance-like with darkened ringing banjo drones intertwined with bowed strings and melancholy verse.

The Scrips were one of only 24 bands chosen to perform for Dallas radio KHYI The Range's - Shiner Rising Star 2011 Event!
