Sky Blue Boys and Cookie - Sun., August 29 at 5pm.

Updated: 2 days ago

Location: Plainfield Rec Field, Recreation Field Road, Plainfield



Banjo Dan and Willy Lindner – known throughout the Northeast as The Sky Blue Boys – teamed up with dynamic and entertaining musician Carrie Cook. She adds a new instrument (the upright bass), new styles (the blues, some funky jug band music, a hint of jazz), and even a new gender to “the Boys'” performances. Dan and Willy have built up a large repertoire of wonderful old ballads, parlor songs, heart songs, and sacred numbers that still, in the 21st century, tell timeless truths. Both of them songwriters, the Sky Blue Boys also deliver their own material, and expand on the traditional instrumentation to incorporate a rich array of acoustic sounds. Their shows are packed with variety, energy, and fun.
