The Lonely Heartstring Band takes to the stage at the Tillotson Center in Colebrook at 7 p.m., wrapping up the big Moose Festival weekend in grand style.
Combining instrumental virtuosity, three-part harmonies, and a deep understanding of traditional bluegrass and Appalachian music, this band is all about a great show.
“These guys are as close to the Real Deal as it is possible to get. They made my hair stand on end,” said renowned fiddler Darol Anger upon hearing the five-member group the first time. Noted Portland violin maker Jonathan Cooper stated, “The Beatles and Bill Monroe would both be proud of The Lonely Heartstring Band. Always true to the soul of the music, played with imagination and attention to detail in every way.”
But there’s plenty more to the music of the Lonely Heartstring Band then Beatles–as fans will discover when they take the Tillotson Center by storm. Tunes like “Ole Slewfoot” brings back the best of Bill Monroe and that high lonesome sound–on octane.
Tickets are $15 and now on sale at Fiddleheads on Main Street in Colebrook and at the door the night of the concert. Come an hour early and for $5 more you can take part in a wonderful barbeque being offered at the Tillotson Center by the Two Rivers Habitat for Humanity organization.
