Progressive bluegrass at city library
Rockland — The Miners Creek Bluegrass Band, which takes as its mantra that one cannot have too many banjos, will bring its progressive approach to the genre to Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Thursday, Feb. 20, at 6 p.m.
Guitar player and lead vocalist Resa Randolph has been writing folk songs for years, but has only recently teamed up with daughter and bass player Emily Randolph to collaborate on developing a newer, fresher approach to bluegrass music. Along with mandolin player Jesse McWilliams and banjo players Whitney Randolph and Peter Proeller, Miners Creek brings a new approach to traditional folk, bluegrass and Appalachian sounds.
Thursday night library events are free of charge and are sponsored by the library and Friends of Rockland Public Library. Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made with 48 hours notice by calling 594-0310.
