Hard driving folk and bluegrass
April 2, 2016 · 8:00pm
Drive through central Pennsylvania’s countryside and you’re bound to end up crossing one of the many thoroughfares called Colebrook Road. Take a listen to the sound of hard-driving original bluegrass and you’ll find a band that shares the same name comprised of members from vast musical backgrounds. The band started as a bunch of guys living in the Harrisburg, PA area connected by a love of acoustic music. Since then, the group has changed and expanded through many shows across the mid-atlantic region and the release of its first full length studio album featuring 10 original songs. With a sound that combines traditional straight-drive bluegrass with modern tonalities, technical playing, tight vocal harmonies, and a unique voice based on large amounts of original composition, Colebrook Road brings interest and excitement to their music and their audience.
Christian Lopez Band
Christian Lopez Band (CLB) is not merely riding the wave of Americana Music, the West Virginia natives, are bending it to its knees. With the will of his voice and the stomp of a steady beat, Christian Lopez and his band are pioneering their own brand of Alt. Folk Country Rock. Like a young Whitman, Lopez translates the iconic America before him into rousing romps and searing serenades employing crisp and thoughtful imagery and storytelling. Lopez is turning traditional songwriting on its head. Lopez takes listeners on a heartfelt rampage through emotion, energy and excitement caring less about the hook then hooking them in with the range and passion in his voice. One moment the music traverses the depths of one’s interior life and the next it rips the listener into a frenzy – a call to stomp, romp and roll.
Hailing from Lancaster county’s rich pastures of plenty Matt Wenger, a young multi-instrumentalist, plays old-time traditional songs of our land as well as the songs of musical-revolutionaries such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Donovan, Johnny Cash, Woody Guthrie and Townes van Zandt. Songs are delivered honestly and acoustically. Balladeering the way into tomorrow .
