OAK TREE CONCERTS PROUDLY PRESENTS

GRACE & TONY
Saturday - April 4, 2015 - 8:00 PM
$15 Advance / $18 Day of Show


She played bluegrass.  He played punk... When Grace Shultz and Tony white met, they fell in love the music just followed after. 
This husband and wife duo, meld Grace's gospel and bluegrass roots with Tony's punk rock background to create one of the most infectious punkgrass bands around.  Cheryl and I were introduced to these guys last year and became instant fans.  We look forward to bringing them to our home for a show.  Give them a listen, they'll have you tapping your foot and singing along in no time.

"Grace and Tony sing duets that are almost guaranteed to make you smile.  One part traditional Americana music, another part gleeful musical fare, these two clearly have experience singing together.  Their harmonies are natural and charisma just oozes from the audio." - Ear to the Ground Music


"My favorite discovery of the year, this full-length debut from self-described “punkgrass” duo Grace & Tony White has a sweet, rootsy charm and the well-worn edge of a classic Social Distortion disc. Like June Carter and Johnny Cash, the married couple’s clear devotion to each other shines through, even in the album’s darkest moments, and although Tony’s brother is John Paul White of The Civil Wars fame, it’s actually Grace, whose amazing abilities on banjo and mandolin, as well as vocals, that makes this “Grassphemy” unforgettable." —Eric Mitts - Recoil

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
