The Gazette: "Abrams Brothers to Play Regent for QEMA Benefit"
They just got back from Indiana, just cut a new CD in New York City and brought the house down in Nashville in 2005.
The Abrams Brothers are very busy boys.
When it comes to Bluegrass music, these young musicians along with their band, are making a name for themselves all across North America.
Their European debut in May 2006 was also a huge success.
Raised in the Kingston area, these talented teens were initially classically trained on violin and then quickly expanded their musical scope to include playing fiddle mandolin, guitar, upright bass, banjo and dobro.
Their harmony vocals are exceptional and with their amazing talent were guests of well-known Hee Haw cast member and Opry member Mike Snider at The Grand Old Opry in 2005.
How lucky County residents will be to have a chance to see them at The Regent Theatre on Thursday, June 19 at 8 p.m.
Quinte Educational Museum and Archives (QEMA) is bringing this talented duo and their band to perform their Bluegrass/Gospel/Jazz/Fusion music for all to hear.
They performed at The Angels Among Us Concert where they received with grand reviews and also received the very prestigious Daniel Pearl Award in 2006-07.
The grass is growing and so is bluegrass music.
Come out for an evening of toe-tapping fiddlin' and good ol' Gospel music.
If you went to a one-room schoolhouse and you believe in preserving the history of education in Prince Edward and Quinte, support QEMA in another fundraiser to restore the Victoria Schoolhouse and further the development of the archives and museum in Amerliasburgh.
Tickets are $28 and are now on sale at The Regent Theatre box office.
