Fourth generation musicians with musical roots reaching back to their great-grandparents, the ABRAMS BROTHERS, are “on their way,” said The Guelph Record, “to becoming the best bluegrass/folk band ever produced in Canada.” They’re also on their way to Hettinger, ND, for the opening concert of the 2013-14 season of the Dakota Concert Association which covers the southwest corner of North Dakota and the northwest corner of South Dakota. They will be performing at the Hettinger School Auditorium at 7:30 pm MDT on Thursday, September 26, 2013.
Despite their age (20s somethings), the Abrams Brothers have been touring together for more than a decade, and in the past few years, have become Canadian Festival favorites. They are the youngest Canadians to appear at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and they’ve toured Europe, performing several times at the Jacob’s Ladder Folk Festival in Israel.
The Abrams Brothers who play guitar, violin and bass have been blowing away audiences across North America, Europe and Israel for the past several years with their virtuosic playing and their effortless harmonies.
The recent release of their fourth CD, Northern Redemption, follows Blue on Brown, an album of songs by Arlo Guthrie and Bob Dylan, a tribute to songwriters much admired by the brothers.
