Farewell Drifters: Bluegrass Meets Pop at the Earlville Opera House

EARLVILLE – The Earlville Opera House welcomes the rising bluegrass quintet, the Farewell Drifters with their shimmering harmonies and disarmingly honest songwriting on Friday, March 18th, at 8 p.m. in the Arts Café.  



 “One of the most striking new bands in Bluegrass, a young Nashville based quintet, that plays with the intensity of Mountain Heart and the fire of the New Grass Revival, the Farewell Drifters, will be picking live…and, in the words of one gushing reviewer, “making folk music hip again.” Nashville Public Radio

The Nashville Review writes: “…this Nashville-based band has burst on to the acoustic scene at high-profile festivals like Grey Fox and MerleFest. The Farewell Drifters feature an acoustic lineup (two acoustic guitars, mandolin, fiddle, upright bass) that serves as the perfect setting for their folk and pop sensibility… Their distinct lyrical talents lie in their ability to express progressive, universal ideas in an accessible way, and with their energetic, youthful presence they are part of a movement to expose a new generation of listeners to the honesty of acoustic music…harmonies are backed by a careful acoustic instrumentation with a bouncing rhythm, intricate guitar fingerpicking and a charming fiddle serenade that ties the song together.”
