LONELY HEARTSTRING BAND

An evening of highly acclaimed Bluegrass!

Nourished by deep roots in the expansive canon of traditional American music, The Lonely Heartstring Band embodies the modern American condition—an understanding and reverence for the past that informs a push into the future. George Clements (guitar, vocals) Patrick M'Gonigle (fiddle, vocals) Charles Clements (bass, vocals) Matt Witler (mandolin) and Gabe Hirshfeld (banjo) bring together their own musical styles to create a sound greater than the sum of its parts.

"These are musicians of dynamic imagination and massive musical talent. However, the music on their album feels as comfortable as a pair of long-worn leather slippers. A fascinating debut." - Tom Clarke, Elmore Magazine

"With George Clement’s soothing vocals leading the way, The Lonely Heartstring Band achieves one of the highest callings of music’s true purpose.” - Gregory Victor, Parcbench

"Original, effusive songs compose the bulk of the album, words bursting forth in staccatos of whimsy and rhyme." - Donald Teplyske, Lonesome Road Review

"We won’t know until December if The Lonely Heartstring Band will get a GRAMMY nomination for its engaging 2016 Rounder Records debut album, Deep Waters. But this fast-rising young quintet is the most notable bluegrass band to come out of Berklee well, maybe ever.” - George Varga, San Diego Union Tribune

"Masterful musicians that have carefully crafted a unique brand of bluegrass.” - Good Times

"One of the most talked-about young groups on the modern bluegrass scene.” - Vineyard Gazette

Live music from 9:00pm.
