There’s a small change in the line-up for River Bend Bluegrass band, but there continues to be huge pride in offering the music they do. “We really pride ourselves to stay (true) to the roots of bluegrass, whether it’s the music we play or the image we project,” says Kris Shewmake. He plays banjo, Dustin Greer is on guitar, Andy Novara plays mandolin and Will Miskall is on upright bass. Fiddler Ian Walsh is replacing Matt McGibany. The members share the vocals. Formed in 2015 in the heart of the Midwest, River Bend is dedicated to the performance and preservation of the “High-Lonesome Sound,” playing original music as well as classic bluegrass standards and bluegrass rarities. For a sampling of their music visit Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. Café seating is limited and is on a first-come, first-seated basis. Doors open 30 minutes in advance. A cash bar is available.
