Miner’s Creek Bluegrass Band
Rockport-based band Miners Creek brings its own distinctive down-home, Maine-grown bluegrass music to Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor, Friday, April 27.
The band’s sound is rooted in the bluegrass tradition with a heavy sprinkling of folk, Latin, Appalachian, blues, and old timey gospel.
Song-writing mother/daughter duo Resa and Emily Randolph play guitar and bass while blending their voices in high, tight harmonies while husband/dad Whitney joins in on banjo and mandolin.
They released their first CD, Ulysses on the Highway in April 2015 with 11 original songs and one cover. Their Kickstarter-funded second album, Strong Black Coffee containing a mix of 14 originals, covers and medleys was released in June 2016.
Founded in October 2013, the band has opened for Red Molly and David Dodson; performed at the Bronze-Wound Showcase at the International Bluegrass Association Conference in Raleigh, NC; the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Special band competition; Joe Val and Jenny Brook showcases; and performed on the main stage at Bluegrass on the Bogs and the North Branch Bluegrass Festival. In August 2016, the band won 2nd place in Billy’s Belly Bluegrass Competition.
Great Desserts and locally roasted coffee, too!
