BLUEGRASS | The Younger Gang 

Rochester's own The Younger Gang describes itself as being, "based in the traditions of Old-Time Appalachia and classic Americana," while seeking "new interpretations of old music without losing touch with its roots." The Younger Gang combines the soulful lead vocals of Michelle Younger, of Windsor Folk Family, and a mix of traditional bluegrass instrumentation with electric additions that are not generally characteristic of a bluegrass band.  It is through this addition of electric instrumentation, and its members' wide range of musical backgrounds, that The Younger Gang makes music that both feels new and respectfully pays homage to its roots.

The Younger Gang is hosting a record release party on Friday, April 18, 9:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. Cover is $5. Abilenebarandlounge.com.
