ANNUAL FALL BLUEGRASS CONCERT

The “Golden Era” of bluegrass may be a long time gone — but not to the members of Long Time Gone. Led by the soulful, lonesome lead vocals of Leo Rosenstein (mandolin), Long Time Gone faithfully brings back to life the classic bluegrass hits of the 1950s, hearkening back to an era when Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs and The Stanley Brothers ruled the country airwaves. Ben Manning (guitar) and Katryn Conlin (string bass) anchor the band’s rhythm section while two of the region’s leading instrumentalists, Barry St. Mane (banjo) and Mike Hildebrandt (fiddle), trade dazzling breaks.
Long Time Gone isn’t just about traditional bluegrass. The band branches out into old-timey songs of the 1920s and original songs written by band members. Double fiddle tunes, a touch of Celtic, hard-driving banjo instrumentals and quite a bit of instrument swapping keeps Long Time Gone shows entertaining. “It’s not just about playing the fastest tunes or the most intricate arrangements, it’s also about having fun,” says Ben Manning, who handles much of the band’s front work. “This band evolved from a regular jam session that began back in 2000, and we’ve always valued being good friends. We hope that enjoyment and ‘comfort zone’ of the band comes through in the music we make together.”

For more than forty years, Bill has traveled back and forth across North America, singing his songs and delighting audiences at festivals, folksong societies, colleges, concerts, clubs, and coffeehouses. A New England native, Bill became involved with the Boston-Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960's and for a time, emceed the Sunday Hootenanny at the legendary Club 47 in Cambridge. Bill quickly became a popular performer in the Boston area.
From the time in 1971 when a reviewer from the Boston Phoenix stated that he was "simply Boston's best performer", Bill has continually appeared on folk music radio listener polls as one of the top all time favorite folk artists. Now, well into his fifth decade as a folk performer, he has gained an international reputation as a gifted songwriter and performer.
Singing mostly his own songs, he has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today, performing nearly 200 concerts a year and driving over 65,000 miles annually.

The Double Down Daredevils are a Minnesota based Bluegrass Band playing Bluegrass and Americana music with a special emphasis on 2, 3 and 4 part vocal harmonies. They are a kind of "Bluegrass Boys meets The Oak Ridge Boys" group. The group philosophy is pretty simple. They are friends first! They play music they love. Music they are excited about. They put our passion on display every time they are on stage. The music is their own blend of traditional bluegrass standards with Americana covers and heartfelt originals served with a hearty helping of their signature harmonies.
