At 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, Drowsy Maggie will perform a mix of Americana, old-time, folk, bluegrass and Celtic music, both instrumental and vocal arrangements, in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. The concert is dedicated to Bob Rubin.
Drowsy Maggie is composed of five musicians. They are: Danny Shipe and Molly Cary, both lead and harmony vocalists with Cary on guitar and Shipe on guitar and banjo; Daria Lin-Guelig on hammered dulcimer and concertina; Bruce Smith on upright bass; and Dave Driskell on flute, clarinet and whistle.
“We will be performing many songs that are new to us,” said Shipe. Among them are: “Sailing to Philadelphia” written by Mark Knopfler, “Stranger at the Door” by Brandi Carlile and “Hey Me, Hey Mama,” by Ray LaMontagne as well as some new Irish, and old-time medleys. “We will also perform some old favorites, like Neil Young’s ‘Harvest Moon,’ and ‘Love Hurts’ by Emmy Lou Harris and Graham Parsons,” he said.
The concert is BYOB with audience members encouraged to bring their favorite snacks and beverages and sit at a table with family and friends.
Admission is $20. For tickets and to reserve a table, call the Deane Center at 570-724-6220, or visit deanecenter.com.
