The Local Boys
Friday, July 16 @ 7:00 pmFree
Join us at the Icehouse Amphitheater for Bluegrass music featuring The Local Boys!
There will be beer + wine + soft drinks & water available for purchase as well as food vendors (TBA).
The Local Boys are a band that has been waiting for the designation “Americana”, as “Bluegrass” just doesn’t cover the material the do. With all members of The Local Boys having deep roots in traditional music, they have a love for the styles that influenced and evolved from old time, bluegrass, country, and rock ‘n’ roll. The Local Boys are fairly standard in their acoustic instrumental arrangement. Guitar, Banjo, Dobro, Mandolin, and Bass. All members of the band are superb lead and harmony vocalists. This gives them the ability to find the perfect combination of voices to render any song. The band members have a combined stage experience of over 120 years!
The Local Boys have performed at Merlefest the last 22 years and running. In addition, they’ve hosted the Plaza Stage with the late, Grammy away winning, Tut Taylor. They actively participate in the outreach program, sponsored by Merlefest, bringing music to surrounding area schools.
