Miners Creek performs in Rockland
ROCKLAND — Rockland Public Library presents a free, fun-filled evening of the toe-tapping, happy music of Miners Creek as part of the Reading Room Concert Series on Thursday, Jan. 17, at 6:30 p.m.
People of all ages are invited and encouraged to attend.
Miners Creek fuses bluegrass with pop, rock, jazz, folk, Latin, Appalachian, gospel and blues. Their rich three and four part harmonies, infectious music, driving rhythm and a whole lot of humor will make you smile and feel a happy glow long after the concert in over.
Founded in October 2013, the band performs extensively in and around New England with a few sojourns further afield. They have opened for Red Molly and David Dodson; performed at the Bronze-Wound Showcase at the International Bluegrass Association Conference in Raleigh, NC; the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Special band competition; Joe Val and Jenny Brook showcases; and performed on the main stage at Bluegrass on the Bogs and the North Branch Bluegrass Festival. In August 2016, the band won second place in Billy’s Belly Bluegrass Competition.
They released their third album All Stove Up in June 2018 and are back in the studio getting ready to release their as-of-yet-unnamed fourth album sometime in the spring of 2019, according to a news release.
