Tompkins Corners welcomes back the Down Hill Strugglers. An old-time string band based simultaneously out of Kentucky and New York, the Strugglers keep the best traditional American music of the 1920s and 30s alive with new interpretations.
They have released albums on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings and Jalopy Records and are featured on the soundtrack to the Coen Brothers film, "Inside Llewyn Davis" produced by T-Bone Burnett.
The third of four events in the John Cohen Memorial Music Series, this project is made possible, in part, through the Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program with public funds provided through the NY State Council on the Arts with support from Governor Andrew M Cuomo and the NY State Legislature.
A quote about the Strugglers, written by John Cohen:
“They have built their repertoire from some of the best music of the past and they keep it alive and lively. They have found resonance with the intensity of rural music, while delighting in the nuances that preserve the individual uniqueness of the genre. This is music that will keep your mind dancing.”
