AS part of their Library Concert Series, The Granary Limerick will host Kristen Grainger & True North (Oregon, USA) for an evening performance on Wednesday June 12.
Fronted by award-winning singer-songwriters Kristen Grainger and Dan Wetzel, True North is rounded out with two Pacific Northwest bluegrass superstars Martin Stevens and Josh Adkins.
The band’s newest project, Open Road, Broken Heart, after receiving great reviews, debuted at number 1 on the Folk DJ Charts for national radio airplay and has continued to stay in the top fifteen for the past six months on the Roots Music Report. Their 2014 release, Elsebound, received very favorable reviews from music critics here and abroad, spent 25 weeks on the Roots Music Report’s top ten (national folk charts) and was the number 7 folk album of the year.
On stage, True North exemplifies the most compelling aspects of live acoustic roots music: Storied songwriting, mad instrumental skills, and vocals that alternately bring you to tears or raise ecstatic hairs on the back of your neck.
