‘Dark Appalachian Folk’ Act to Appear at EAC
September 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5
Eastport Arts Center is thrilled to host The Resonant Rogues in concert, Saturday, September 24 at 7 pm. The group’s dark Appalachian folk paints a picture of their lives in the mountains of Western North Carolina and on the road. Anchored by the songwriting pair of Sparrow (banjo, accordion) and Keith Smith (guitar), the duo has traveled the byways and highways of America and crossed the oceans with instruments in tow. From riding freight trains to building their own homestead, the pair are no strangers to blazing unconventional trails. This tour finds them as a power trio with harmonies, banjo, accordion, guitar, and upright bass. The online Journal of Roots Music, ‘No Depression,’ noted: “Their intense cohesion is so intertwined that it feels like they’re playing with one pair of hands.”
Tickets for the show are $15, attendees 17 and under will be admitted free of charge; they may be purchased at the door or via the EAC site.
Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport and eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible. The EAC abides by the State of Maine CDC COVID guidelines. Additionally, at this time, the EAC recommends that people wear masks when in our building.
