Tribute to John Prine
Concert starts at 8:00 pm.
- Patrick Coman:
The blues are in this dude’s veins and he mixes it very well with his folk and country influences. Like a fine blended whiskey, aged, and pour straight up . . . this stuff is smooth. Redline Roots
- His plainspoken and sometimes gruff delivery reveals the restless soul of a wandering minstrel, very much in the dusty-soled tradition of wayfaring strangers such as Gram Parsons, Steve Earle and Neil Young Dan Bolles, Seven Days (Burlington, VT)
- . . .
- The Meadows Brothers:
Singing guitarists Dustin and Ian Meadows prove that roots music is an unending resource, turning early influences gleaned from the Band and Gillian Welch into an engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own. Boston Globe
- This is the stuff I grew up on; good guitar playing, harmonica, a little steel guitar action like a train moving down the track. It keeps you grounded, reminds you of where you started this journey, let’s you go back to those early days when singer-songwriters ruled the day. These brothers are the real deal. 50thirdand3rd.com
- Ian and Dustin Meadows are jack-of-all-trades instrumentalists who have come together to create a truly amazing musical experience. Their sound is a throwback to all of the great folk/country/bluegrass/blues that was kicking around both prior to and shortly after World War II, as well as the great folk revival of the ’60s. Chip McCabe, Lonesome Noise.
