ALSTEAD, N.H. – Mole Hill Theatre presents contemporary bluegrass and folk music quartet the Stockwell Brothers Band on Friday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Bruce, Barry, Alan, and Kelly Stockwell’s music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms, and three-part harmonies. They cover straight ahead bluegrass songs, finger picked acoustic guitar ballads, full tilt breakdowns, and traditional mandolin tunes mixed in with more unusual fare – Americana melodies riding world beat grooves and Celtic, jazzy, even neo-classical instrumentals.
Featuring 2005 Merlefest bluegrass banjo contest winner Bruce Stockwell, the Stockwell Brothers have performed alongside artists from Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, and Earl Scruggs to Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Jonathan Edwards, and Asleep At The Wheel, recorded with Mike Auldridge and Phil Rosenthal of the bluegrass supergroup the Seldom Scene, and toured throughout the United States and in Canada and Europe. As a trio, they have released two albums, “Stobro” and “Leave My Dreams Alone.”
Mole Hill Theatre is located at 789 Gilsum Mine Road in Alstead, N.H. Tickets can be purchased at the door. This is an all ages listening event. BYOB. For information, call 603-352-2585 or visit www.stockwellbrothers.com.
