THE bluegrass quintet Lonely Hearts String Band brings its unique take on traditional American music to Randy’s Pickin’ Parlor this weekend. Since their formation in 2012, the band has earned a 2015 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards Momentum Award and gained a big following throughout North America.
With high energy, instrumental virtuosity and rich harmonies, the band boasts a growing catalog of original compositions that honor bluegrass’s roots. Featuring two Berklee College of Music alums, a life-long student of the Suzuki method, and an alum of the New England Conservatory of Music and Manhattan School of Music, the band’s impressive chops are complemented by their youthful energy. The string band released its debut full-length in 2016 on the legendary Rounder Records label, home to Alison Krauss, Béla Fleck, Gregg Allman, and more.
