Saturday Sept 1: Tumbling Bones with Little Timmy Findlen & His Aroostook Hillbillies
Doors 730, Music & Dancin’ at 8! Admission $7
The twenty-somethings who make up Tumbling Bones play a mix of old-time country and old-fashioned blues that belies their relative youth. But their folk music is no museum piece. It is living, breathing music infused with a little of the contemporary rock ‘n’ roll the band members were reared on and reworked into their original arrangements and compositions. The last half decade has taken them from street-performing on European street corners to venues across the continental United States to an acclaimed performance on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Since the release of their second record Schemes in May of this year Tumbling Bones has been on the road non-stop including dates throughout the midwest, east coast, and an outstanding three week tour of Ireland.
The bandleader of Little Timmy Findlen & His Aroostook Hillbillies is an Aroostook native, but he’s been living in Portland for the past 6 years leading many musical and theatrical projects. As Tumbling Bones’ favorite local musician and personality, Findlen will be performing some classic and new country songs with Tumbling Bones hopping onto their rock ‘n’ roll instruments to back him up.
