Miller’s Crossing 6/8/08


Bluegrass Band

Bayard Cutting Arboretum

Sunday June 8, 2008 at 2:00 PM

Admission to the concert is free, but there is a $6 per car parking fee.

This year, the Islip Arts Council celebrates its milestone 32nd season of presenting fine music in its Free Concert Series. On June 8th, 2008 at 2:00 PM, the acclaimed Miller’s Crossing Bluegrass Band will be performing on the lawn at the beautiful Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River .

Founded in 2004, Long Island-based Miller’s Crossing brings a fresh outlook to traditional bluegrass with high energy, masterful musicianship and original material.

IBMA nominee fiddler Ron Feinberg is a bluegrass veteran, appearing with Bill Monroe and Mac Wiseman. Chris Maloy (guitar/vocals) showcases flatpicking skill and a bluegrass tenor that is rarely found this far north, and has recorded with young bluegrass phenoms Andy Falco, Cody Kilby and Josh Williams. Adirondack native and lifelong bluegrass fan Marjorie Kelting (guitar/vocals) writes material that sounds like it comes straight out of the Great Bluegrass Songbook. Upright bass player Patrick Falco got his start as a Garden City teenager playing with the legendary Water Street Blues Band, and has recorded on the latest Todd Collins release. Banjo picker Terry McGill is much in demand as a studio musician, recording with the Lost Ramblers and the Dixie Beeliners, has received national attention with his solo CD, “ Straight Drive ” and has authored a banjo instruction manual for Mel Bay Publications.

After less than a year of performing together, Miller’s Crossing was chosen to be the featured musical group in “Farming The Future,” an important Public Television documentary on the plight of the farmers of Long Island’s East End . Ron Feinberg’s true-life lament, Bergold’s Farm, is prominently featured in this documentary.
