      Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys on Wednesday, September 18 at The Hook and Ladder Theater As a singer, songwriter, bandleader, and entertainer, Big Sandy has few contemporaries. Over the last three decades, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have kept up a constant cycle of traveling back and forth across the lower 48, then hopping across the pond to Europe and beyond. They bring with them a brand of music that has earned an induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, several national television appearances, guest spots on The Grand Ole Opry, and a slew of adoring fans. They’ve become torchbearers of American roots music with a style that encompasses Western swing, country boogie, Cajun, and rockabilly influences.
