After previously catching Parsonsfield at a private house concert in North Jersey, I fell in love with the band! Unfortunately no photos were allowed but that didn’t take away from the amazing atmosphere that was in the room when they started to play. The band falls into the category of blue-grass/folk which is one of my favorite genres so I thoroughly enjoyed the show! They also did some Christmas classics with their own folk twist which was a nice change from hearing the well-known Michael Buble. If you’re a fan of Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson, Elizabeth Cotten etc.,then I recommend checking them out!

Arguably one of the best songs in the category of New Folk/Alternative.

Last Saturday I went to another show at Drew Eckmann’s house. A band called The Carpenter Ants were playing, and although id never heard of them, they were known as a country blues group so I thought id check them out. I was pleasantly surprised! Every single song they played I enjoyed, which is not common!

The guitarist Michael Lipton was the best guitarist ive been able to see play live! When talking to him after the show he was so humble about it and said, “there’s always someone better than me”, but he doesn’t give himself enough credit!

If you like Johnny Cash, Doc Watson, or any blues music check them out!
