OAK TREE CONCERTS PROUDLY PRESENTS

THE HOWLIN' BROTHERS
Sunday - April 26, 2015 - 4:00 PM
$15 Advance / $18 Day of Show

The Howlin' Brothers are a Nashville based string band anchored in a bed of old time blues and bluegrass.  The Howlin' Brother play with a ferocious energy that drags you in.  The band's 7th album, 'Trouble' was released in 2014 and was regarded by Rolling Stone as one of the '26 albums of 2014 that you probably didn't but really should hear'.  Cheryl and I became familiar with the band at the John Hartford Memorial Festival in 2012 and are excited to bring the Howlin' Brothers to our house for a show.


"...this well-named Nashville-based outfit imparts a rock 'n' roll sensibility to it's take on bluegrass, old-time country, and vintage jazz." - The Boston Globe

"Tennessee trio The Howlin' Brothers offer a distinctly bluegrass take on the blues, adding upright bass, fiddle and banjo to covers of greats such as Muddy Waters as well as pumping out original foot stompers."  - Time Out Chicago

Mustered Courage is a acoustic quartet hailing from Melbourne, Australia.  Like the Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show, Mustered Courage bridges the gap between traditional bluegrass and modern roots music.  The band has garnered much success in the folk and roots music scene in Australia - touring heavily ,releasing two albums both of which have received glowing reviews, loads of radio support, and awards in Australia.  Last year the band set its sites on the United States - playing 60 shows in 43 states, including the IBMAs.  This summer they will return to the States to play some of the biggest bluegrass festivals, including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and John Hartford Memorial Festival.  In between these two festival they are making a stop in Barnhart, MO for a show.

"The four-part harmonies are right on the money.  And the string picking, whether lightning fast or mellow and relaxed, is incendiary."  - Rhythms Magazine
