BLUEGRASS AT ITS BEST!!
Allegheny Riverstone Center for the Arts presents an event you will not want to miss – an Outdoor Concert of World Class Music in one of the most beautiful locations in western Pennsylvania – stately RiverStone Farm, Foxburg.
Have an unforgettable day at the scenically beautiful RiverStone Farm, and enjoy the nationally acclaimed Bluegrass musicians and recording artists, the DePUE BROTHERS BAND, in an outdoor concert at 4:00 PM, Sunday, August 17, in the outdoor arena by the RiverStone H-Barns.
Enjoy original blue grass tunes featuring the DePue Brothers Band and the most amazing “Orangeblossom Special” on their CD, “Weapons of Grass Construction” – http://www.depuebrothersband.com/
Here’s what the critics have said: David Rogers, Blowing Rock News: “The most complex “Orangeblossom Special” you have ever heard, mere textual descriptions cannot do it justice.” Hal Real, President, World Cafe Live: “This band of brothers and symphonic friends gives real meaning to the phrase “progressive bluegrass”, bending genres while delivering a powerful mix of classical chops, blazing bluegrass and rock and roll.”
For those not familiar with this musical iconic family from northwest Ohio (Bowling Green, to be exact) one is in for an ear-bending revelation. These four violinist brothers encompass a vivid blend of bluegrass, classical, and rock genres.
Each brother is a classical virtuoso in his own right, and brings rich and diverse talents to their sound. As a family they have been making music together for over 25 years. They were named “Musical Family of America” in 1989 by presidential decree, were the subject of a nationally televised PBS documentary in 1993, and two brothers (Jason and Zach) were featured in the film documentary Music From the Inside Out in 2005. Their first album as brothers, Classical Grass, sold out of its first printing.
Coming together with Tony Trischka, Mark Cosgrove, Don Liuzzi and a variety of bass players, the band began performing and recording in 2004. Weapons of Grass Construction, with its progressive mix of genres, gives a direct nod to their bluegrass tradition and their classical training, while adding a deeper infusion of rock and blues.
You can hear for yourself – bringing your family and friends and lawn chairs and a picnic basket for what will be unforgettable summer afternoon of Blue Grass in one of the most beautiful spots in all of western Pennsylvania. The elegant natural beauty of RiverStone Farm in Foxburg, PA will serve as the backdrop for an afternoon of a vivid blend of bluegrass, classical and rock genres performed by the DePue Brothers Band on Sunday, August 17 at 4:00 PM.
