August 13 - Colebrook Road is excited to be returning to the Tabernacle this summer to entertain us with their unique style. This Harrisburg, PA outfit has a real synergy, both vocally and instrumentally, between its five talented and consistently complimentary members; an abundance of exciting original material; and a refreshing contemporary grass sound that stays very much in the traditional bluegrass mode. Guitarist, lead vocalist, and main songwriter Jesse Eisenbise lends his great vocal range and racing guitar picking to each song, while banjoist, dobroist, and bass vocalist Mark Rast hammers out blinding right-hand rhythms blended with just enough left-hand virtuosity. Mandolinist Wade Yankey's gragantuan rhythm chop and inventive breaks play off of fiddler and bariton vocalist Joe McAnuity's searing, syncopated fiddle work. Bassist and tenor vocalist Jeff Campbell holds down the bottom end with a notably percussive drive.
August 20 - Lil' Brother Band is a fun loving group of musicians playing and singing your favorites and our original songs too. Rock, R&B, country, children's, ethnic, and standards, "Timeless Music."
