PUTNEY– Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of contemporary bluegrass and folk music with The Lonely Heartstring Band and The Stockwell Brothers Band at Next Stage on Friday, June 30, at 7:30 pm.

The Lonely Heartstring Band comprises Berklee College of Music graduates George Clements, Patrick M’Gonigle, Matt Witler, Gabe Hirshfeld, and Charles Clements. Their music is a combination of old and new styles, melding the sounds of traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and arranging. Featuring soulful instrumental virtuosity and soaring three-part harmonies, the quintet has generated a devoted following of music-lovers across North America, performing and headlining at major music festivals and venues since 2012.

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. They cover straight-ahead bluegrass songs, finger-picked acoustic guitar ballads, full tilt breakdowns, and traditional mandolin tunes mixed in with more unusual fare - Americana melodies riding world beat grooves and Celtic, jazzy, even neo-classical instrumentals.

Next Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill. Tickets are $18 bought in advance, and $22 at the door. Advance tickets are available at www.nextstagearts.org, Turn It Up in Brattleboro, and Putney Food Co-op. For information call (802) 387-0102 or visit www.nextstagearts.org.
