Be entertained with musicians, Strung Together, and local creative artists at Greater Good Gallery and Isaac Taylor Garden on Friday, June 9, 2017 from 5 – 8pm at 228 Craven St., New Bern.
Strung Together plays a variety of types of music. Band members include George, Dare, Catherine, Abigail and Mason Oliver. George Oliver explains, “The common thread for us is that they are all songs that we love. Folk, old-timey, Americana, spirituals, a bit of bluegrass and a dash of country…each of these songs tells a story, and they have each become part of our story as we have learned to play them together and put our own spin on each one.” The band just recorded its first cd, “The Littlest Birds,” which is available for purchase online. Visit StrungTogetherBand.com to find out more info.
