A NorthernBound show in August...

A few years back, one of the most popular BG bands in CT was a group (mostly) from Winsted, in the northwestern corner of the state. NorthernBound is a band consisting of 3 brothers named Paden (Steve on mandolin, Ray on bass, Harry on banjo) and on the guitar, Mike Larocque. All four sing, and the group's arrangements often include four parts. For the last couple of years, NorthernBound took a sort of "hiatus" from performing, but they've come back for a few shows within the past few months.

On Friday, August 11th, NorthernBound will be performing at the Tolland County 4-H Fair. This fair is held at the Tolland Agricultural Center, 24 Hyde Avenue (Route 30) in Vernon, CT. Showtime is unknown, but we'll pass along that information when/if we get it. Admission seems like a bargain: $8 per vehicle OR $5 per individual walk-in. As an added feature, a group of young (early teens) CT bluegrassers who have come together as the group Sugar Creek will be performing, as well. Food will be available. For more information, call (860)423-6688.
