Tricky Britches

 

Saturday, April 26th at 7:30

With their down-home harmonies and dirty licks, Portland-based band Tricky Britches returns for another fun performance. The string band is the product of mountain music, rockabilly, and country swing all thrown together into one room, to create something uniquely uplifting. Fiddle and mandolin tear through honky-tonk rhythms, while lonesome harmonies pull the audience in until a spontaneous dance explosion occurs.

According to the Portland Phoenix, “In an age of auto-tune and manufactured music, Tricky Britches isn't just a throwback—they're a look forward. We can comfort ourselves in the warm embrace of three-part harmonies, fire-breathing fiddle and mandolin licks, and the thump-thump to the gut of a stand-up bass.”

Tricky Britches formed in 2009 when four friends in Portland, Maine, took their street-corner jams on the road across the United States. As time went by they focused more on songwriting and original material which culminated in two full length albums, ‘Hard Fought Day' (2011), and ‘Good Company' (2013). Their influences include John Hartford, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, The Stanley Brothers, Grateful Dead, The Everly Brothers and American traditional folk music.

Band members include Jed Bresette: guitar, bass, vocals; Seth Doyle: mandolin, guitar, harmonica, vocals; Tyler Lienhardt: fiddle, washboard, vocals; and Ryan Wilkinson: tenor banjo, guitar, bass, vocals.
