Spinney Brothers @Randy’s Pickin’ Parlor

WHILE you’re in the family spirit of Thanksgiving, head over to Bloomingdale to see two brothers showcase their talent. Hailing from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada, Allan and Rick Spinney broke out onto the bluegrass scene in 1992. With vivacious, tight sibling vocals, their act quickly began earning them attention.

The duo grew up in a household of musicians with a penchant for country and bluegrass music. Influenced by The Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe & Flatt & Scruggs, and Smiley Bates, Allan took to guitar, while Rick picked up banjo. The two founded their first band, The Bluegrass Student Union, in 1989; they gigged at school events and benefits.

Driven by traditional Southern bluegrass stylings, the brothers combine personal stories and modern stylings with old-time picking, gigging alongside bandmates Gary Dalrymple (mandolin) and Terry Poirier (upright bass).
