Old-Time Duo Coole and Rosenberg to perform

Described by Banjo Newsletter as “a two-man folk festival,” the acclaimed Canadian duo of Chris Coole and Ivan Rosenberg will make a rare visit to northern California for a concert Wednesday at Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters, located at 671 Maltman Drive in Grass Valley. The evening of music will begin with a short opening set by special guests Barwick & Siegfried, a Grass Valley duo that has entertained audiences from the stage of the Strawberry Music Festival to pubs and concert halls throughout Ireland. General admission tickets for the concert are $10-$20 on a sliding scale and are available at the door. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m.; doors open at 7.

Chris Coole and Ivan Rosenberg, who also work together in the bluegrass band the Foggy Hogtown Boys, first took to the road as a duo in 2008 and have since toured in British Columbia, Ontario, Oregon, California, and most of the northern U.S. The unique clawhammer banjo/Dobro duo has recorded two superb CDs of old-time country music, Farewell Trion (2010) and Return to Trion (2014). In a review of the first CD, Bluegrass Unlimited said simply, “If you are a fan of great music that doesn’t always follow the rules, look no further.”
