The Whallonsburg Grange Hall is proud to present the Americana folk duo Red Tail Ring in concert on Friday, May 5 at 7:30pm. The Michigan-based band shares a raw blend of original compositions and interpretations of old ballads and dance tunes from Appalachia in this stop on their spring tour of Sweden and the northeastern US.
Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their own songs, Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo infuse them with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, jawharp, and plain-old foot stomping. “We love pushing the boundaries of what a traditional song can be,” says Beauchamp. “It informs how we write our original songs. There’s a real energy exchange between the old and the new.”
“The very best of the 21st century’s minimalist and highly original folk music . . . a peerless duo.” – American Roots UK
Red Tail Ring is touring behind their latest release, Fall Away Blues, which features new songwriting fused with old-time and country blues sounds. Over seven years of touring, Red Tail Ring has performed their brand of acoustic roots music at many notable venues and festivals around the United States, and have been well received by audiences in Denmark, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
