Next Resonance Concert: Poughkeepsie Playlist

Fast and furious fiddlers’ delights, from Appalachia to Ireland and mountains to hollers, will be on the bill when The Poughkeepsie Playlist comes to The Mainstay on Sunday, March 25th.  What could be more fun on a Sunday afternoon than Whiskey Before Breakfast and Hangman’s Reel tossed out as ear candy by four terrific musicians?

Andrea Velasquez, Rachel Conklin, Michael Champagne and Stephen Minor are superb National Music Festival alums who’ll leave Bach at home when they pack up fiddles, guitars and a few other things with strings and head for Rock Hall.  This toe-tapping, hand-clapping gig will be an early spring change of pace for the NMF’s Resonance Series, just two months before the two-week classical festival begins in June.

Sunday, March 25
3:00pm
The Mainstay

Single tickets are available for this and other Resonance concerts at $20 each; children and students are $5 each. (Please be prepared to show a school ID for students over the age of 14.) Single tickets are available by clicking here. 
 
Single tickets will also be available at the door for each Resonance concert.
