Redwood Hill - Tomorrow Night

HVBA Concert

Saturday Dec 8th 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Unitarian Fellowship, 67 S Randolph Ave, Poughkeepsie, NY 
The superb bluegrass band Redwood Hill will perform on Saturday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m., in another of the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association's intimate concerts at the Unitarian Fellowship, at 67 South Randolph Avenue in Poughkeepsie.

Redwood Hill is a tribute band dedicated to furthering the legacy of The Country Gentlemen, one of the best-known and most influential bluegrass bands ever to pick and strum.  The Country Gentlemen were widely admired during the 1960s and '70s as a progressive crossover band linking bluegrass and folk music.

Keith Edwards leads Redwood Hill on guitar and vocals.  Edwards' music is, appropriately, strongly reminiscent of The Country Gentlemen's famed Charlie Waller.  Edwards has played with the bluegrass groups The Feinberg Brothers, Straight Drive and Zink & Co.

On bass fiddle will be Lillian Fraker, who has been called "the best bluegrass bass fiddle player in New England."  She has appeared with The Bear Bridge Band, The Oldtime Bluegrass Singers, Girl Howdy and Tex's Troubadours.

Dave Orlomoski, a superb mandolinist, is the founder of Tex's Troubadours and is currently a member of the Seth Sawyer Band.  He also plays as part of the Bear Minimum duo.

Banjoist Dave Shaw is the other half of Bear Minimum.  A multi-instrumentalist with a lifetime of bluegrass and country background, Shaw currently plays with The Seth Sawyer Band and NewFound Grass.

The band is the namesake of Gordon Lightfoot's pleasingly complex song "Redwood Hill," which was first recorded by The Country Gentlemen in 1972.

Tickets are $15 at the door.

New CD Looking For a Reviewer

On February 1, 2019, roots music quintet The Lonely Heartstring Band will release Smoke & Ashes, their second album for Rounder.

Produced by Bridget Kearney of Lake Street Dive, the eleven-song set takes the musical experimentation for which the group has become known even further and announces the arrival of a band which isn’t just genre-bending–they’re creating a wholly new sound. Poetic depth, 60s pop, blues-inspired grooves, and more tease out exciting textures from the band’s bedrock bluegrass foundation.

As fiddle player and harmony singer Patrick M’Gonigle observed, “We can’t help but be a cumulative experience of our musical tastes.  We love pop music — all of us. And the Beatles, of course. That’s our common ground.”

Smoke & Ashes puts that ideal blend of common ground and diverse directions on ferocious display.
