Charm City Junc­tion to rock River­front Con­cert Se­ries

Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

CH­ESTER­TOWN — Blue­grass sensation Charm City Junc­tion will take the stage Thurs­day, June 23, as part of the an­nual River­front Con­cert Se­ries spon­sored by Wash­ing­ton Col­lege’s C.V. Starr Cen­ter for the Study of the Amer­i­can Ex­pe­ri­ence. The fafree con­cert will start at 6:30 p.m. on the Cus­tom House lawn, 101 S. Wa­ter St.

With the re­lease of its de­but al­bum in 2015, Charm City Junc­tion put a new spin on old-time mu­sic, car­ry­ing the torch of fast­pick­ing blue­grass and toetap­ping Celtic mu­sic. Fea­tur­ing fid­dle, claw ham­mer banjo, the but­ton ac­cor­dion and up­right bass, this quar­tet isn’t afraid to take roots mu­sic to new places but al­ways with an eye on tra­di­tion.

Bring your own pic­nic, blan­kets and chairs. In case of in­clement weather, per­form­ers will take the stage at Wash­ing­ton Col­lege’s Hyn­son Pav­il­ion, next to Wilmer Park.

The River­front Con­cert Se­ries fea­tures per­form­ers who re­flect Amer­ica’s mu­si­cal her­itage from Ap­palachian folk mu­sic to con­tem­po­rary blue­grass and Amer­i­cana acous­tic mu­sic.

Charm City Junc­tion will per­form Thurs­day, June 23, in the River­front Con­cert Se­ries at Wash­ing­ton Col­lege.
