Spanning bluegrass to the Fab Four, Lonely Heartstring Band comes to town
BRATTLEBORO -- Twilight Music presents The Lonely Heartstring Band, a dynamic new quintet of Berklee College of Music students who share a love of bluegrass and acoustic music, as well as the music of The Beatles, at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery, 139 Main St., on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
George Clements, Matt Witler, Gabe Hirshfeld, Patrick M’Gonigle and Louis Fram play traditional and original songs as well as the songs of the Beatles, which they play as close to the original arrangements as possible, while adding their own influences.
They create a new and unique sound using the standard bluegrass lineup of instruments -- guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and acoustic bass.
