Summit County events calendar: 9-18-13

Blue Moon Soup will play a free show at three20south on Wednesday. The acoustic folk quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio, entrances audiences with an eclectic mix of jam-band staples, folk and bluegrass traditionals and original tunes that fuse folk and psychedelia to establish a unique identity in an increasingly homogenized musical landscape. As evidenced by the presence of a fiddle, mandolin, guitar and upright bass, Blue Moon Soup’s bluegrass and Celtic folk roots run deep. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the Soup gets flowing around 10.
