The Schroon Lake Arts Council has picked another extraordinary act for Tuesday’s concert at the Boathouse.
The five piece Lonely Heartstring Band takes the stage, bringing with them a foundation of traditional American music, roots and a dash of blues, pop and rock .(There are more than a few Beatles numbers in their set list).
Tickets are $25 for adults and $5 for students. The show kicks off at 7.30 pm, July 18, at the Boat House. More from their official bio:
The Lonely Heartstring Band embodies the modern American condition: an understanding and reverence for the past that informs a push into the future. This multi-talented group of musicians is a classic Bluegrass quintet—always far greater than the sum of its parts.
Combining soulful instrumental virtuosity with soaring three-part harmonies, their growing repertoire of original songs and compositions displays not only their considerable talents, but also a dedication to meaningful roots-conscious music.
Since their beginnings in 2012, The Lonely Heartstring Band has been on the rise and shows no sign of slowing down. With their 2015 IBMA Momentum Award and their 2016 release of their debut full-length album on the legendary Rounder Records label, there is every reason to hope that they are at the front edge of a significant career.
Already they have generated a devoted following of music-lovers across North America, performing and headlining at major music festivals and historic venues from Western Canada to California, from Kentucky to New Hampshire. Whether it’s a festival stage, theatre, or intimate listening room, The Lonely Heartstring Band always delivers a dynamic, diverse, and heartfelt performance. Over the last three years of touring, the band has crafted shows that generate a genuine connection and bring crowds to their feet.
