The Salvation Alley String Band is live for the first time in the tasting room Saturday, March 19th from 3-6 pm.
Hailing from Northampton, Massachusetts the Salvation Alley String Band play original Country music. Incorporating elements of Western Swing, Bakersfield, and Outlaw country spanning from the 1940’s – 1970’s. They have made many stages around New England their home, and are as comfortable at a dive bar as they are playing a festival (FreshGrass/Green River Fest) or opening for country legends (George Jones). Ryan Quinn (guitar/vocals) has a unique songwriting approach, matching lush & tender melodies with post-apocalyptic and at times self deprecating lyrics. Matt Silberstein (Upright Bass) & Matt Jugenheimer (Drums) always lay down a solid backbeat while Andy Goulet (pedal steel) adds the perfect gritty counterpoint. They are accompanied by Brandee Simone (vocals), whose voice has been the show stopper at many of their shows over last 6+ years. Sal Al (if you’re into brevity) just finished their 3rd album for RubWrongways Records entitled “Enjoy This While It Lasts”.
