Returning to Two Blokes! Starting at 5pm – local favorite River Boy will be here laying down some live bluegrass. Pigman Goods hot dogs will be at the brewery from 12 – 4 for eats, followed by J & B’s Bucket List from 5 – 9pm. Itinerate Literate will also be in the lot selling books all day, so come early for some chow and a little shopping, and stay for the bluegrass!
Released in 2010, Riverboy’s self titled debut album garnered some great reviews:
“From the opening notes of Caroline, River Boy grabs you and just won’t let go. There’s a bit of everything on this project. Up-tempo stuff, ballads, and stuff in-between. This album merits repeated listens, because it’s THAT good!”
Dan Joseph – Blueridge Express CKWR Ontario
“Distinguished by some twists and turns in the subject matter as well as very good singing and instrumental work, the CD forges new ground while adhering to the forms and sounds of bluegrass music.”
Ted Lehmann – Bluegrass, Books & Brainstorms
“It’s a very strong project, great song writing and a wonderful Contemporary spin on The Traditional”
Dennis Jones – Goin’ Across The Mountain on WNCW
“The delivery is sweet and relaxed, real and inviting.”
Neal Cappellino – Grammy winning recording Engineer
River Boy #27 on WNCW’s Top 50 Bluegrass Albums for 2010! Mighty fine!
