Back at Artword, New Cumberland, a bluegrass band from London Ontario: Tom Burns – vocals and guitar, Blair Heddle – vocals, mandolin and dobro, Paul Hurdle – vocals and banjo, Tom Rutledge – string bass. Special guest for May 14 is virtuoso fiddler and mandolin player Darrin Schott. http://www.newcumberlandband.com
Featuring inventive solo work, driving rhythms and three part vocal harmonies, New Cumberland’s musical integrity and joy in playing together resonates in every performance. Guitarist Tom Burns and multi-instrumentalist Blair Heddle began playing together 40 years ago and connected with banjo player Paul Hurdle shortly thereafter. After various musical adventures, they added bass player Tom Rutledge to form New Cumberland. Years of playing together as musical friends gives New Cumberland a natural, intuitive group dynamic which is apparent to audiences as they watch the group interact on stage.
Combining the straight ahead bluegrass of Bill Monroe and Jimmy Martin with material from other traditions – both old and new, New Cumberland casts a wide net – capturing and captivating audiences of all generations and musical tastes.
