Spinney Brothers in concert for Cariboo Memorial Hospital

The Hub Bluegrass Club is pleased to present The Spinney Brothers, Canada’s International bluegrass band.

The Hub Bluegrass Club is pleased to present a benefit concert for Cariboo Memorial Hospital by The Spinney Brothers, Canada’s International bluegrass band, says event organizer Rossetta Paxton.

The concert takes place in the Gibraltar Room, Thursday, April 11.

Comprised of Allan Spinney, Rick Spinney, Gary Dalrymple, and Darryl Hebb, The Spinney Brothers are originally from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.

They debuted in 1992, showcasing a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound.

The cornerstone of their musical identity is their thorough understanding of traditional, southern-flavored bluegrass music.  The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, yet the brother’s music is equally shaped by their personal lives and rural heritage.  By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present.

Memories, their debut CD on Mountain Fever Records, garnered the number one spot on the National Bluegrass Music Survey in February 2012 with the title cut and continues to stay at the top of the charts even after being released over a year ago. The band is featured on the April cover of Bluegrass Unlimited magazine and is gearing up for the international release of their next project, No Borders, on May 7.

Five dollars from each concert ticket sold will go to the Cariboo Foundation Hospital Trust for Cariboo Memorial Hospital.  The Spinney Brothers perform the benefit concert at the Gibraltar Room Thursday, April 11 starting at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door and may be purchased by calling 250-398-7665 or contacting Rossetta Paxton at rossetta@shaw.ca.
