The Abrams Brothers @ Showplace Peterborough with special guest Darrelle London
Event on 2012-04-26 19:30:00
The Abrams Brothers, with their new-grass bluegrass, are creating a palpable buzz: "fiery energy"… "blistering fiddle work"… "young, fun, with talent to burn"… "effortless harmonies"… or, as folk music legend Arlo Guthrie put it, "These guys are way too young to be playing that good!" With the release of their fourth CD, Northern Redemption, The Abrams Brothers have raised the bar yet again, underpinning the more traditional fast rhythms and intricate guitar finger-work with the addition of electric instrumentation, creating the 'new grass' of their unique sound.
The Abrams Brothers have just announced that Darrelle London will be joining them on their Ontario tour in April. Darrelle is a singer/songwriter from Toronto whose rise from indie sensation to international star involved much dedication to her craft, and some unexpected supporters along the way. In 2010 fellow Canadian Chantal Kreviazuk teamed up with Darrelle to write three songs for her new album. Of her sessions with Darrelle, Kreviazuk says “she sings from her heart, and her gentle unique approach to music is so special, it’s a pleasure to be immersed in.” Be sure to catch Darrelle performing tracks from her much-anticipated new album Eat A Peach live on Canada AM, Tuesday April 3,, the album’s release date.
In 2005 The Abrams Brothers became the youngest-ever Canadians to grace the stage at the iconic Grand Ole Opry in Nashville TN. Accompanying their tight and satisfying harmonies, on a broad range of instruments – guitars, mandolin, violin, viola, stand-up bass – The Abrams Brothers draw from a deep pool of musical styles – Scottish fiddle tunes, country, classical, jazz, Americana, bluegrass, gospel, roots, blues – slipping back and forth effortlessly from one tune to the next in a seamless blend steeped in family tradition.
Strong family values and an undeniable love for music and education are contributing factors in the inception of MUSICVILLE ONTARIO. The challenge: the first city on the Ontario tour to sell 600 tickets will receive ,000. towards a local children’s music education program! The charity will be named on May 1 in consultation with the Mayor and Council of the winning city.
