Sam Dallas Trio, 11:25am
Sam Dallas Trio is a country music trio comprised of Brooklyn musicians Sam Dallas, Casey Davidson, and Yates Webb. Having met and formed friendships within the tight-knit NYC bluegrass and roots jam community, the trio honed their sound across the campsites of upstate music festivals and in bars from Astoria to Red Hook. The band debuted in November of 2018 to a packed house party in Ditmas Park, and is anticipating a busy 2019 with a full slate of original music and traditional tunes. Influenced by the work of Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Ralph Stanley, Luke Kelly, Dolly Parton, and more, the trio takes a stripped down approach to the classic American country sound. Tight harmonies, minimalist instrumentation, and good feels are the name of the game. We can’t wait to see you at our next show. Stay in touch on FB, IG, or come hang with us on Saturday nights at Sunny’s. Sam Dallas, Vocals Yates Webb, Guitar Casey Davidson, Bass.
Rockwood Music Hall, Tuesday June 25 @ Midnight

The String Thirys bring you a lot of old and a little new.

New EP coming 6/2019!! Julie Thiry (Vocals and Sass) Collin Couvillion (Guitar/Vocals and Dour Expressions)

Gotham City Pickers, 2:45pm
If it’s legal to combine Oldtime and Bluegrass music the Gotham City Pickers would be doing it. Fortunately for the Gotham City Pickers the places they have played have not passed and laws forbidding such activity. We do this with commitment passion and energy. Think Monroe style mandolin with some good old Riley Pucket Guitar backing and Fiddling from Eck Roberts via Scotty Stoneman.
