Anyone familiar with the Americana music scene knows this Upstate, New York-based band has cut their teeth on a killer live show. With a never-ending tour schedule and a steady buzz, they have built a very solid underground fan base. “The game has been live shows and nose to the ground since the beginning,” says guitarist/songwriter Dan Forsyth.
As well as a devout following and a sizable discography, the band’s hard work has also been a huge part of the inspiration for their music. The songs and arrangements have grown out of time spent on the road, growing closer, learning with and from each other and weathering the up’s and down’s of the journey together. “We have a truly special bond creatively and personally. It’s the driving force behind the music,” violinist/songwriter Claire Byrne adds.
It is with this bond, patience, determination and undying mutual love and respect for music, the road, and their friendship, they have approached their latest offering, ‘Tree of Shade.’
The Brothers Blue
Old-Timey Blue Country String Grass Music!
A Finger Lakes born trio of songwriters that flirt with Bluegrass, Celtic, and swampy Cajun country sounds as they weave three-part harmonies over a tapestry of fiddle, banjo, and guitar virtuosity. Featured as emerging artists both by the Greyfox Bluegrass Festival and the Golden Link Folk Singing Society, their performance is well-rounded and polished like river rocks, always reflective of the hills and lakes they came from. Their tight huddle around the microphone and contemplative songs leave a lasting impression on the lucky listener.
As teenagers, Benny Haravitch and Matthew Sperber began learning songs together on an acoustic guitar they brought on bicycle trips throughout the Finger Lakes region. Growing up together in Honeoye, NY, the boys came to appreciate playing music early on. Matthew made his way to Buffalo, NY where he met Irish fiddler Charlie Coughlin, and the trio was forged. Together they spread the joy of fiddle tunes, the strength of community, and the living tradition of folk music.
