The basis of the brothers, signature sound is fresh contemporary folk material delivered with the bright, energetic stamp of bluegrass banjo, flat top guitar, mandolin, and brotherly harmonies. The acoustic trio format captures the intimacy of the solo singer/songwriter one moment and the drive of a full-tilt bluegrass band the next. Ballads, gospel songs, and fiddle tunes add traditional appeal; alternative grooves and jams a progressive twist. And Bruce’s banjo-driven compositions are alternately funky, jazzy or even classical.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. In case of rain, the performance will be moved into the Newfane Union Hall.
