Next Backyard Concert:
Dirty River Ramblers
Saturday, September 6, 7:00 pm
6115 Huntington Ave, Lincoln
Described as a bluegrass fusion group, the Dirty River Ramblers push the standard boundaries of bluegrass and oldtime music to create a style that sits loosely between genres, allowing them to creatively explore while writing their own material. Riding the wave of their recently released debut album, Ramble On, the band has been traveling and performing across the Midwest, to the Rocky Mountains, and to Alaska, meeting new musical friends, and performing for new fans. If you like a basic high-energy, on pitch, hillbilly folk sound, combined with boundary-pushing songwriting and musicianship, you need to see the Dirty River Ramblers.
