Live Music: Fireside Collective
April 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Winners of the 2016 Merlefest Band Competition, Fireside Collective is quickly blazing a name for themselves as a must-see progressive acoustic ensemble. Formed in 2014, Fireside Collective is a group of folk music enthusiasts who blend elements of traditional bluegrass and American roots music with modern acoustic arrangements. With an energetic live show, the band presents finely crafted original music infused with impeccable solos and tight harmonies.Captivating listeners with songs that are centered around change, relationships, and being on the road, they transition smoothly between danceable bluegrass numbers and passionate folk ballads. With Jesse Iaquinto on mandolin, Tommy Maher on Dobro, Joe Cicero on acoustic guitar, and Carson White holding down the groove with upright bass, Fireside Collective delights in tastefully exploring the boundaries of roots music.
