The literal translation of "Sans Abri" is "without shelter." The French use it as a term for "homeless". Josh Erwin and Michael Paynter found themselves with a handful of new songs that didn't have a home in The Packway Handle Band, the acclaimed bluegrass-based group from Athens, GA, that they co-founded. Sans creates a sound that steps away from their bluegrass roots and sometimes even finds itself wading into Americana waters. Expect bluegrass standards, catchy originals spotted throughout the set, bluegrassified covers, and even a country song or two when they take the stage.
Sans Abri has tours the deep south intermittently hubbing out of their home base of Atlanta, GA. The band's performances have a professional and skilled musical sensibility that only comes with the years that Erwin, Paynter and Harris have spent playing music together. Those who give Sans Abri a listen will surely be pleased that these songs have found a home.
