Road in the Reading Room

Apr 06, 2018
Jim Tolles and Emily Jeffries perform as Old County Road.

Rockland — Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., will present an evening with Old County Road Thursday, April 19, at 6:30 p.m. as part of the library's Reading Room Concert Series. Listeners of all ages are invited to attend.

Old County Road features Emily Jeffries and Jim Tolles, who sing and play rural roots music and offshoots thereof. Jeffries plays old-time fiddle and guitar, and Tolles plays guitar, fiddle and mandolin.

The duo has acquired a reputation for well-crafted harmony and a unique vocal blend. Concertgoers likely will hear fiddle tunes, “brother” duets, old folk melodies, original songs and maybe a street gospel tune. The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 594-0310.
