Cleveland Countys Acoustic Syndicate have been playing their high-energy blend of bluegrass, folk and jazz for two decades. Their tightly rhythmic instrumental work and blended three-part harmonies have earned the band appearances at Telluride, Bonnaroo and MerleFest, and two CDs on Sugar Hill Records. On Saturday, the Syndicate rolls into Raleigh for a show at Lincoln Theatre.
