Up Around the Sun is made up of Austin’s original creative rebels Tim Kerr and Jerry Hagins. Despite Appalachia-style guitar and banjo jams, Up Around the Sun is far from traditional. The esoteric duo has only played a handful of shows since coming together in 2013. Most recently, they were joined by Alaskan fiddler Ken Waldman at The Long Center for an evening of music, poetry and a showcase of Kerr’s eclectic, eye-grabbing art. For some of the most punk rock Irish fiddling you’ll ever hear, check out their Studio 1A performance in the player below.
