On Saturday, January 24, the group will leave its weekly hit at the Bearsville Theater behind for a night and help the Ellenville-based Shadowland Theater kick off its 25th season. The group is a sight to see as well as a sound to remember - clustered onstage, heads bobbing frantically, the fiddle of Fooch wailing alongside the howl of the stringed mayhem as they generate high-energy instrumental sets or give new life to old-fashioned songs or their own material cast in an old-time mold. Playing hard and fast is second nature to the band; but so are ballads full of nuance and grit.
According to Hollander, "Tim Kapeluck, Bill Keith and I originally played together on and off locally for more than 25 years, with a repertoire that extends from traditional bluegrass to American acoustic music, jazz, country and some odd tunes that fit no real category."
Admission to the Saturday, January 24 concert is $15. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the Shadowland Theatre box office at 157 Canal Street in Ellenville. Reservations are recommended and can be obtained by calling (845) 647-5511.
