Sylvester Manor Educational Farm is kicking off their 2013 arts programming with a bluegrass concert on Saturday, January 19th at 7:30pm at the Shelter Island School Auditorium. The concert will feature local East End band DuneGrass and Boston-based Della Mae. The concert is made possible through support from the Shelter Island Town Recreation Department. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/304267.
Della Mae’s lineup is a who's-who of promising young pickers: lead singer Celia Woodsmith, guitarist Courtney Hartman, bass player Shelby Means, mandonlinist Jenni Lyn Gardner, and two-time National Fiddle Champion Kimber Ludiker are all seasoned performers who have won countless contests and shared the stage with the likes of Willie Nelson, Del McCoury, Leon Russell, and Laurie Lewis.
Della Mae strives to create music that tells a story while delivering a punch. Their musical style seamlessly blends years of experience with traditional music and modern singer-songwriter sensibilities. From songs that explore independence and urban adventure to timeless themes of love and loss, Della Mae brings acoustic grit and twang to town with no apologies.
