The Brother Brothers ~ Friday, October 26th ~ 7:30pm ~ Playlist Theater at Uptown Grill
These identical twins have a harmony like no other. Their sound is striking and undeniably captivating. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. Click here to purchase tickets.
