True North

Doors 8pm, Entry €8, Side Bar

Hailing from the state of Oregon, USA,  Americana-bluegrass quartet True North combines traditional bluegrass instrumentation with fat harmonies and folk-edged songwriting for a distinctive sound that is fresh, warm and memorable.
Fronted by vocalist and award-winning singer-songwriters Kristen Grainger and Dan Wetzel, True North is rounded out with two well-known Northwest bluegrass superstars Dale Adkins and Suzanne Pearce Adkins.
The band’s latest release, “Elsebound” received very favorable reviews* from music critics in the states and abroad, spent 25 weeks  on the Roots Music Report’s top ten (national folk charts),  and was the number 7 album for the year on that same report.
True North’s performances exemplify the most compelling aspects of live acoustic roots music: intelligent songwriting, thoughtful arrangements, terrific instrumental interpretations by the band’s highly-skilled pickers, and vocals that alternately bring you to tears or raise ecstatic hairs on the back of your neck
