The Meadows Brothers- Friday, March 23rd at 8 pm

“Singing guitarists Dustin and Ian Meadows prove that roots music is an unending resource, turning early influences gleaned from the Band and Gillian Welch into an engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own.”  BOSTON GLOBE​

HOMEGROWN FOLKED-UP COUNTRIFIED ROCKNROLLED ROOTS MUSIC, SERVED UP SIBLING STYLE
The Meadows Brothers’ (Ian, 23 & Dustin, 21) distinct brand of roots music draws inspiration from a huge list of influences, combining folk, blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll into what the Boston Globe calls  “An engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own.” Known for their blood harmonies, unsweetened songwriting, expressive guitars and bluesy harp, the brothers have played hundreds of shows all over their native New England, the Midwest and Great Lakes regions, and down the Eastern seaboard while continuing to hone their craft. Their last album release, “Won’t Be Troubled”, demonstrates the brothers’ keen ability to really rock in addition to the more mellow harmonies that they most are noted for.  Sean Lynch (WSBU) says: “With vivid storytelling, each track becomes a journey to a different place. The guitars feed off each other and the vocals pair together perfectly during the harmonies.”   For more on the Meadows Brothers, go to http://www.meadowsbrothers.com/bros-home.html

 

The Howlin Brothers- Friday, April 13th at 8 pm

The Howlin’ Brothers are a Nashville based string band composed of Ian Craft, JT Huskey and Jared Green.  Anchored in a bed of old-time blues and bluegrass, their upbeat shows are heavy with original and traditional music, featuring the sounds of slide banjo, harmonica and old-time fiddle.  Sounding like what would happen if a bunch of Appalachian punk rockers formed a jug-band, The Howlin’ Brothers play with a ferocious energy that drags you in and finds you boogieing along in spite of yourself.  For more on the Howlin Brothers, go to http://thehowlinbrothers.com/
