Time for Bluegrass!
Co-Sponsored by NYM Friends of the Library
Friday, December 8 @ 7:30PM

Our Fall Concert Series continues with The Ecelectic bluegrass trio on Friday, December 8th, 2023 in the Cultural Center’s listening-room-style gallery space. Doors open at 7:00 and music begins @ 7:30 P.M.

Co-Presented by NYM Friends of the Library & NYM Regional Cultural Center, the Eclectics are a bluegrass-based trio, playing old favorites, surprising bluegrass (covers of older pop and country), and original music.

The Electics are made up of Phil Nusbaum on banjo and vocals; Nick Martin on fiddle and vocals; and John Bergquist on bass. The trio plays a great variety of song types. The focus is instrumental music, though they sing some good old songs, too.

Phil Nusbaum is a long-time bluegrass and folk music radio host, a teacher, and has published many articles about bluegrass music. A professional communicator, Phil and the other Eclectics have created structured presentations that make performances more than simply a sequencing of songs. They are also flexible in their concerts and regularly embark on improvising exchanges with audiences that keep the mood light, providing context about their songs as they go.

At this Cultural Center concert, you can expect to hear great music and learn a bit too. The trio will talk about the roles of the instruments, weaving the blues into the music, providing musical variety and humor, and the importance of originality. Connecting songs via spoken narratives gives Eclectics performances a unique twist and promise an entertaining evening for all!

Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door ($2 discount for members), and $5 for students. Cash bar and light refreshments available. All are welcome!
