Music presents The Modern Grass Quintet on Saturday, Jan. 25 at
7:30 p.m. Come hear some toe-tapping, knee-slapping high energy,
The Quintet's music is considered contemporary, accessible,
progressive and time-honored. Robert Resnick, host of Vermont
Public Radio's All the Traditions says, "The Modern Grass Quintet
is a combination of seasoned bluegrass veterans… in addition to
being great musicians, the members of the MGQ create a natural
swing which makes them stand out among many pickers. Great music,
and it'll make you want to jump!"
The Modern Grass Quintet is comprised of current and former
members of Breakaway, the Bluegrass Gospel Project and Possum Haw.
Adam Buchwald is a hard-driving banjoist and a staple of the
Northeast acoustic scene. He is a luthier and also appears with Bob
Amos & Catamount Crossing. Todd Sagar, a New York native, is a
versatile bluegrass, jazz and swing fiddler and dobroist. Andy
Greene is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. In
addition to playing guitar, he teaches music instruction in
Northern Vermont. Stephen Waud is the band's progressive mandolin
stylist, and the bassist, Kirk Lord, is a respected member of the
New England bluegrass community.
General admission is $15. Venue is BYOB. Brandon Music is
located at 62 Country Club Rd. Brandon.
