Colebrook Road

Drive through central Pennsylvania’s countryside and you’re bound to end up crossing one of the many thoroughfares called Colebrook Road. Take a listen to the sound of hard-driving orginal bluegrass with tight vocal harmonies and you’ll find a band that shares the same name. The band started as four guys living in the Harrisburg, PA area connected by a love of acoustic music, and music in general. After several practices, it became clear that they had something going. The band played their first gig in March of 2009 at the Rock Bass Grill in Wormleysburg, PA, across the mighty Susqhehanna from Harrisburg, PA. Since then, the group has gone through a line-up change, added a fifth member, and is booking shows in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia. The band also released its first full length studio album featuring 10 original songs in November of 2012. With a sound that combines traditional straight-drive bluegrass with modern tonalities, technical playing, tight vocal harmonies, and a unique voice based on large amounts of original composition, Colebrook Road brings excitement to the heart of anyone within earshot.

Coal Town Rounders

Grafting their passion for Appalachian music and harmony singing to 21st century sensibilities, Northeast Pennsylvania-based quartet Coal Town Rounders occupy a space in time that is distinctly their own. With a foundational repertoire of bluegrass material you’d expect in a group twice their age, the band is poised to expand the reach and relevance of traditional music with their unique and hard-driving sound. Live performances around a single microphone showcase the intensity and dynamic interplay between each member and lend a timeless quality to an old-time approach.

Following the release of ‘Numero Uno,’ their 2013 EP of traditional bluegrass tunes, the band has been well received by audiences throughout its home state of Pennsylvania, the northeast, and stretches of the midwest. They have shared the stage with a range of nationally touring acts including Emmy Lou Harris, Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Lumineers, The Grascals, and The Roys, and with budding groups such as Cabinet, The Tillers, Wood & Wire, and The Barefoot Movement.

Coal Town Rounders are currently putting the finishing touches on their first full-length record of original material to be released in May of 2015. ‘How It Used To Be’ is a recording that attests to the enduring qualities which define the style known as bluegrass music. It is evident that the band has absorbed the traditions inherent to this idiosyncratic American art form, and they have melded the genre’s vocabulary with the unique musical influences each member brings to the fold. Filtered through the aggressive artistic ethos of post punk/DIY culture, it is a thoroughly modern record, imbued with studied bluegrass tradition.
