(Cambridge, NY October 25, 2017) Kevin McKrell and his band will be thrilling concert-goers with their unique Celtic and bluegrass sound on Saturday, November 4 at 7:00pm. An Irish and Folk Festival top-pick, we are thrilled to have him and his band here with us at Hubbard Hall. The lineup of Kevin McKrell’s high-energy collective is a who’s who of North Country Roots Music, each player a top draw in their own right. John Kribs plays a variety of instruments while Orion Kribs impresses with his mandolin playing. Legendary bass player Arlin Greene (son of Smokey Greene) provides the backbone for everything from a high-energy bluegrass stomp to one of The McKrells’ Celtic ballads. Brian Melnick’s percussion is inspiring and Doug Moody of both The McKrells and The Steam Donkeys provides technically complicated and emotionally gripping fiddle playing. Kevin McKrell himself has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Scotland, and Italy. His songs have been covered by bands all over the world, including The Kingston Trio, The Fureys, Woods Tea Company, and Hair of the Dog. With each player capable of lead singer status, the harmony of the vocals is stunning, the energy explosive, and each song a gem. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $15 for students and can be purchased online, through our Box Office at 518-677-2495, or at the door.
