Tremperkill Boys' CD release party on June 9
The band is happy to announce that this Saturday ,June 9 at their favorite venue, The Pleasant Valley Meeting House, they will be playing a concert and will also release their first CD, “The Tremperskill Boys.” Hoping for a great turnout the concert begins at 7 p.m. and will include an opportunity to purchase the CD and win a few door prizes!
The Tremperskill Boys’ repertoire includes classic mountain airs, Irish reels and other ethnic tunes, as well as a few fresh songs about life in these hills. Their music reflects the way life was lived in these mountains and valleys when neighbors met at dance and grange halls and enjoyed dancing and fiddle music.
Many a romance began during those contra and square dances and continued into long marriages. Or the music and dancing strengthened those relationships bruised by too much work and too little gain. Some families displaced by the acquisition of farms met up with others who were no longer close neighbors but were still dear friends.
This Catskill Mountain band has had been busy playing at Ashokan, the Walton Coffee House, the Belleayre Mountain Music Festival and numerous weddings, birthday parties and street festivals.
The acoustics of the Pleasant Valley Meeting House are outstanding. The bands bold enthusiastic playing will get your feet tapping and those inclined will find space to dance. The Tremperskill women and men invite you to enjoy an evening with them.
