Love Canon Do Bluegrass Covers of ’80s Hits on Saturday Night in Brooklyn
Posted On Thursday, June 25th
Yes, the music (originally) came from the ’80s, but the very talented string band Love Canon—Jesse Harper (guitar and vocals), Adam Larrabee (banjo), Andy Thacker (mandolin), Darrell Muller (bass and vocals), Nate Leath (fiddle) and Jay Starling (resonator guitar)—cover that decade’s hits as raucous bluegrass songs. Since forming at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottsville, Va., in 2010, Love Canon (below, doing “Boys of Summer” for Private Concert Series) have been winning over fans across the country with their party-starting live shows. Find out what all the fuss is about, when they headline Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg on Saturday night. Bluegrass four-piece the Brummy Brothers open the show.
