NEWFANE- The Old Schoolhouse in South Newfane will host a special “Music Nite” on Saturday, January 19, starting at 7:30 pm. Shelving Rock, a rhythmic duo composed of Stephen Iachetta and T. Breeze VerDant, will play its foot-stompin’ banjo, guitar, and fiddle tunes for the public.

Shelving Rock is a magical blending of two experienced musicians from diverse backgrounds being able to dance to the same muse. Iachetta, the “Shaker Fiddler,” joins together with VerDant, the “folker with a rock and roll heart.” Both players are very open to whatever approach the other takes at any moment and it reveals itself in the freshness of their sound.

Shelving Rock can transcend the heights of timeless fiddle tunes from the sweet and the high-stepping, to land on their feet alongside down and dirty, high energy, blues-driven guitar grooves with rhythmic endorsement of foot-stomping drum and vocals. Alongside their well received original tunes are very creative renditions of some familiar songs.

Iachetta plays the fiddle, mandolin, claw-hammer banjo, and four-string guitar. VerDant plays the hybrid picked electrified acoustic guitar, foot drum, and provides vocals.

Admission is free, although donations are encouraged to help fund construction of a new floor in the schoolhouse. The Old Schoolhouse is located in the village of South Newfane at the intersection of Dover Road and Auger Hole Road. Parking is free along Auger Hole Road. Guests are encouraged to bring drinks, snacks, and friends.
