The Gather Rounders
October 29, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$19 - $22
Featuring seasoned musicianship and improvisation, this Maine-based band offers a unique interpretation of traditional bluegrass and folk music through original and melodic compositions that showcase the wide range of their eclecticism and talents.
The Gather Rounders’ dynamic instrumental textures take flight with grace while rooted in the soulful vocals of lead singer-songwriter, Caroline Cotter. Along with banjoist Ron Cody, flatpicking guitarist, Lincoln Meyers, fiddler, Eric Lee and upright bassist, Wendy Cody, this group is a powerhouse quintet.
The band came to life in 2013, drawing from the members’ shared love for all things acoustic, folk and bluegrass at a weekly gig at Gather Restaurant in Yarmouth, ME. With a repertoire of original bluegrass and folk and creative covers, the band has expanded to an ever-widening audience and bring a passionate energy to the stage. Individually and collectively they’ve shared stages with the likes of Darol Anger, David Wilcox, Tony Trischka, Peter Rowan, Bill Keith, Loudon Wainwright, John Gorka, Rushad Eggleston, and Jesse Brock, among others.
Together, The Gather Rounders make a brand of modern folk and bluegrass music rooted in tradition yet infused with inventive verve.
