PUTNEY – Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of contemporary folk and bluegrass music from near and far by Vermont-based The Stockwell Brothers and Oregon-based Fellow Pynins on Sunday, February 19 at 7:30 pm at Next Stage.
Bruce, Barry, Alan, and Kelly Stockwell’s music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms, and three-part harmonies. Featuring 2005 Merlefest bluegrass banjo contest winner Bruce Stockwell, The Stockwell Brothers have performed alongside artists from Bill Monroe, Doc Watson and Earl Scruggs to Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Jonathan Edwards and Asleep At The Wheel, recorded with Mike Auldridge and Phil Rosenthal of the bluegrass supergroup The Seldom Scene, and toured throughout the United States and in Canada and Europe.
Fellow Pynins is an award-winning contemporary folk duo with a keen and bucolic sense of vocal harmony and song craft. Wielding claw-hammer banjo, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, and acoustic guitar, Dani Aubert and Ian George sing predominantly original music as well as reworked traditional ballads gathered from their travels.
