UUCB Concerts for a Cause: Tricky Britches
Tricky Britches will bring their high-energy string band to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick on Saturday January 11 at 7:30 pm as part of the Concerts for a Cause series to raise money for local charities.From their roots of playing heel-stomping old-time fiddle tunes on the streets of Portland, Tricky Britches has progressed into a fusion of original material, classic bluegrass, country, and folk rock. The band consists of Tyler Lienhardt on fiddle, Seth Doyle on mandolin, Jed Bresette on bass, and Ryan “Bear” Wilkinson on banjo. The story of the band begins in the spring of 2009 when three longtime friends from Gorham decided to take the songs from their back-porch jam sessions and Portland street corner busking to the next step. They produced a CD of old-time tunes and started playing for weddings, parties, and contradances.
As time went by, the band added a banjo player, started writing their own songs and produced 2 more CD’s featuring their original material. Their influences include John Hartford, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, The Stanley Brothers, The Grateful Dead, The Everly Brothers, and American traditional folk music.
Before the boys knew it, Tricky Britches was playing concerts and music festivals all over Maine, the US, Hawaii and Europe, but their favorite show is still on a crowded street corner at midnight.
Click here for a sample of their music, Jackson Square.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door, Students/Children: $5. Available on December 1st at the church office, Gulf of Maine Books, or online at https://britches.brownpapertickets.com/.
Two-thirds of the proceeds from this concert will benefit TEDFORD HOUSING (providing housing and services for the homeless) and OASIS FREE CLINICS (providing free medical and dental services for those who are uninsured and can’t afford insurance)
