Wide Open Spaces

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 4, 2014 - 8:00pm

The reviews say it better than we can: Fiddle, mando, bass, banjo and guitar - all in the hands of five bluegrass marksman that hit the bullseye over and over again all evening long. Wide Open Spaces is made up of expert musicians who play a style of bluegrass that is so fresh, so clean and so tight that it nearly lifts you right off your chair along with your spirit. Peter Anick – Vocals, Mandolin and Fiddle; Matt Carlen – Guitar, Vocals; Marie Rocheleau-Demers, affectionately known as Mudd – Vocals, Guitar; Chris Dombrowski – Bass; Glenn Nelson – Banjo, Vocals (and standup comedy) meld together to play “bluegrass without borders

"Using incredible bluegrass instrumentation to play a wide range of music, Wide Open Spaces follows in the tradition of groups like Claire Lynch and the Punch Brothers, who use bluegrass instrumentation to play a wide range of music that will take you to Caribbean islands, California gold country, Celtic ceilidhs and the Kentucky hills. They even did a Rolling Stones cover that was perhaps the best thing I have ever heard played live, ever. At times, you found yourself almost magically transported from the Kentucky hills to the middle of a favorite Beatles song that they masterfully masked into the score." -- Rockland News, Review of Wide Open Spaces, April 1, 2013
