PUTNEY — The Stockwell Brothers and Oregon-based Fellow Pynins will perform at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill in Putney, on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present this evening of contemporary folk and bluegrass music from near and far.
Bruce, Barry, Alan, and Kelly Stockwell’s music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their acoustic sound features new singer-songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms, and three-part harmonies.
Featuring 2005 Merlefest bluegrass banjo contest winner Bruce Stockwell, The Stockwell Brothers group has 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, Canada, and Europe.
Fellow Pynins is a contemporary folk duo featuring Dani Aubert and Ian George playing claw-hammer banjo, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, and acoustic guitar. They sing predominantly original music as well as reworked traditional ballads gathered from their travels.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $24 at the door. Advance tickets are available at nextstagearts.org. For information, call 802-387-0102. Next Stage will provide a beer, wine, and cocktail cash bar.
