Bluegrass with Coppermine Junction
Coppermine Junction is composed of four noteworthy names in the Nelson music scene. Each of their journeys started elsewhere (Ireland, Australia & NZ) but their paths have fortuitously crossed in Nelson. Banjo, mandolin, guitar, fiddle and upright bass are employed to deliver a blend of high energy bluegrass rhythms, thoughtful Americana classics and toe tapping Old Timey tunes. Steve McGlone (guitar, vocals) and Sean Magee (banjo, mandolin, vocals) provide us with driving bluegrass rhythms and melodies, while Shanine Raggett (fiddle, vocals) adds a layer of superb fiddle and wonderful harmonies. Sue Ware (Bass, Vocals) provides the glue with her solid backbeat on the upright bass. The group is not afraid to blend contemporary rock, pop and dance with traditional bluegrass to keep things fresh.
Their music is sure to leave you grinning and coming back for more.
Bring your dancing trousers and be ready to raise a sweat!
This will be a courtyard concert if the weather allows otherwise we’ll be inside!!
