Folk, bluegrass, street music featured at upcoming Norwood Village Green concerts
Tuesday, July 13, 2010 - 5:18 pm

NORWOOD – The Norwood Village Green Concert Series welcomes the vocal/instrumental trio Finest Kind, bluegrass musicians Banjo Dan and the Mid-Nite Plowboys, and the street music band Buskers to the band shell for performances over the next several days.

The British and Canadian vocal/instrumental trio Finest Kind will be featured on Thursday, July 15 at 7 p.m.

Ian Robb, Ann Downey and Shelley Posen discovered their collective sound almost by accident in 1991, when they happened to be sitting together at a song swap, and unsuspectingly launched into the chorus of a song together.

Banjo Dan and the Mid-Nite Plowboys will take the stage on Sunday, July 18 at 7 p.m.

Since the 1970s, Vermont’s Banjo Dan and the Mid-Nite Plowboys have consistently delivered some of the finest, most dynamic and most original bluegrass music ever heard in the Northeast. The Plowboys have developed strong reputation built on soulful lead singing, spot-on harmonies, fiery picking and a stage show full of energy, variety and humor.

The Buskers on will perform on Thursday, July 22 at 7 p.m.

The Buskers have been digging among the roots of pop music since they met at an open mic in a basement dive in New Hampshire in 1993. With more or less old school instruments they tap the street music tradition for which they are named, then go much further, with serious musicianship, a sense of humor, and energy to burn.

Admission to Norwood Green concerts is free but audience members have a chance to contribute to “the bucket.”
