Bluegrass concert with New Cumberland band, Sat Nov 23

REANEY'S PICK: New cumberlandSaturday November 23, 2013, at 8 pm, $15. Back again (their spring show sold out, so reserve early!) 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, with Darrin Schott on mandolin. [To reserve tickets, call Artword Artbar at 905-543-8512, or BUY TICKETS ON-LINE].
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.
Proficient in the straight ahead driving bluegrass of Bill Monroe and Jimmy Martin, New Cumberland also stretches the genre in directions taken by The Seldom Scene, John Hartford and Jerry Garcia’s Old and in the Way. Songs from non-bluegrass artists such as the Grateful Dead, Neil Young, The Rolling Stones and Willie P. Bennett are also liable to appear on a New Cumberland set list.
“Refreshingly tuneful, New Cumberland has everything I love about roots music; seamless harmonies, timeless tunes, and a whole lot of things with strings!” Allison Brown former host of CHRW’s “For The Folk” 94.9 FM London. “Bluegrass masters…” James Reaney, London Free Press.
