Our next show is November 11, featuring Brother Trucker.
October 14 The Novel Ideas A new band for MUTWT and our first in the new season lineup, The Novel Ideas is a country-folk quartet from Massachusetts known for their four-part harmonies. For a preview, listen to their self-titled album on their website–then come see them perform live in Donnellson’s intimate setting.
November 11 Brother Trucker Longtime popular folk-rock band from Des Moines, Iowa, the Press Citizen writes, “Brother Trucker presents a heaping helping of their literate, soulful and cinematic brand of earthy, ‘pan-Americana’ music.”
January 13 Circus No. 9 This new progressive acoustic group from East Tennessee embraces the influences of bluegrass, jazz, rock and more. The energy and talent of these award-winning musicians shines through on banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass.
February 3 Switchback A longtime Water Tower favorite, Americana and Celtic soul duo of Brian Fitzgerald and Marty McCormack are braving the February weather to come back and regale us with classics like “Danny Boy” and “Drunken Sailor,” along with their original work.
March 3 Sanctified Grumblers Sanctified Grumblers’ sound is formed from a mesh of finger picking resonator guitar, harmonica, 6-string banjo, and clarinet. Eric Noden is a musical force, but Rick Sherry on the washboard steals the show.
April 14 The Crane Wives Returning to MUTWT, a cool indie folk band from Grand Rapids, Michigan with fabulous female vocals, The Crane Wives weaves intricate melodies, sister-harmonies, and compelling songcraft into some really good music (and one of Beth’s favorite bands.)
