Lonely Heartstring Band, Stockwell Brothers perform at Next Stage

PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of bluegrass and newgrass by The Lonely Heartstring Band and The Stockwell Brothers at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill, on Sunday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m.

The Lonely Heartstring Band are Berklee College of Music students George Clements, Patrick M'Gonigle, Matt Witler, Gabe Hirshfeld, and Charles Clements. Their music is a combination of old and new styles, melding the sounds of traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and arranging.

The band began with a common love for the music of The Beatles, bringing some of their favorite songs to life while attempting to remain true to the original arrangements.

The Stockwell Brothers - Bruce, Barry, and Alan Stockwell - span traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms, and three-part harmonies.
