Bluegrass and folk quartet concert this Saturday
WARDSBORO- On Saturday, July 20, Wardsboro Curtain Call presents contemporary bluegrass and folk quartet The Stockwell Brothers at the Wardsboro Town Hall.
Bruce, Barry, Alan, and Kelly Stockwell’s music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms, and three-part harmonies. They cover straight ahead bluegrass songs, finger-picked acoustic guitar ballads, full tilt breakdowns, and traditional mandolin tunes mixed in with more unusual fare.
Featuring 2005 Merlefest bluegrass banjo contest winner Bruce Stockwell, The Stockwell Brothers have performed alongside artists from Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, and Earl Scruggs to Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Jonathan Edwards, and Asleep At The Wheel; recorded with Mike Auldridge and Phil Rosenthal of the bluegrass supergroup The Seldom Scene; and toured throughout the United States and in Canada and Europe. As a trio, they have released two albums, “Stobro” and “Leave My Dreams Alone.”
Doors open at 6:30 pm and music begins at 7 pm, $10 admission at the door. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (802) 896-6810.
