Intricately braided vocals, richly textured instrumentals and innovative rhythms will be in store for the Palmer Street Coffeehouse crowd as the Revenants take the stage 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3, 2020.
The show — held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 4 Palmer St. — will feature Taylor Armerding, Andy Greene and Kirk Lord playing a combination of original, time-honored and contemporary Americana music.
Armerding was a founding member of the Boston-based progressive blues band Northern Lights. Producer of nine albums, Northern Lights won a Boston Music Award and a nomination for Song of the Year from the International Bluegrass Music Association. In addition, Amerding has performed as a member of Vermont’s Bluegrass Gospel Project and the bluegrass band Barnstar!
Fellow Bluegrass Gospel Project alumni, Greene and Kirk join Amerding, completing the trio.
Greene, a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, performed with Up the Creek in the ‘80s, then joined the award-winning contemporary bluegrass band Breakaway as its guitarist and principal songwriter. He and Lord were founders of the Modern Grass Quintet, which toured New York and Vermont and recorded two CDs. The two also played with Northern Flyer.
Lord, a sought-after bassist, is a well-respected member of the New England bluegrass community. His credits include a stint as a rock ‘n’ roll and R&B musician. He played with the Truth, and Bob Degree and the Bluegrass Storm, as well as Big Spike Bluegrass before joining the others in the Bluegrass Gospel Project and helping to form the Modern Grass Quintet, in addition to playing with Northern Flyer.
