7:30 pm – The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men “Monster Mash” / Nels Andrews Duo opens
Friday, October 28, 2016 @ 7:30 PM
ADVANCE TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED. TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR BEGINNING AT 7:00 PM.
The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men are a rootsy rock n’ roll band that mix a blend of folk, country and rock — one part Avett Brothers and one part early Neil Young. Every bit as influential as their early surroundings, songwriters Jamie and Kellen Coffis’ blend of folk, blues, R&B and straight ahead rock are evidence of an upbringing spent listening to all of the right records from Tom Petty, Neil Young and The Beatles.
Opening the concert is the Nels Andrews Acoustic Duo. Nels Andrews has spent the last decade wandering, gathering songs, and touring nationally and internationally, winning prestigious songwriting awards from Kerrville, Telluride, and Mountain Stage. His latest record Scrimshaw—his second collaboration with producer Todd Sickafoose (Anais Mitchell, Ani Difranco, Andrew Bird)— has received high critical praise, including best of shortlisting by WFUV’s John Platt, NPR’s Folk Alley, WFMU, WMNF and Americana UK.
