October Homegrown on WGRE show to feature Noble Roots, Bridge 19

Monday, October 2, 2017

The second installment of the Homegrown on WGRE concert series will feature Noble Roots and Bridge 19 on Tuesday evening.

The concert is set for 7-8:30 p.m. at Music on the Square, 21 N. Indiana St.

Noble Roots is an Americana group based in the Cicero that draws influences from a wide variety of different musical styles and genres to make its own acoustic sound. Members Kelli Ray Yates (acoustic guitar), John Gilmore (mandolin) and Gary Wasson (bass) all contribute to the vocal force.

Combining a little bit of blues, a little bit of bluegrass, a little bit of folk music and a little bit of old country, they draw influences from Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan, Tom T. Hall and many others.

Having visited multiple times for the ParkFest concert series, Bridge 19 returns to Greencastle for the first time in more than a year.

The 2015 Lousville Music Awards Folk Artist of the Year finalists have been described as “equal parts pop and folk,” with arrangements by songwriters Amanda Lucas and Audrey Cecil that “creep into Americana as they harmonize like siblings.”

Besides hosting the monthly concerts, Homegrown on WGRE is a weekly radio show hosted by Dennis Furr, Glen Furr and Ben Costley each Thursday at 10 a.m.

The show features the DJs sitting down with a local or regional artist for a performance and interview in the WGRE studeo.

Additionally, the listening room concerts at Music on the Square provide additional material for the show, as they are recorded and broadcast on the radio thereafter.

Other upcoming Homegrown on WGRE concerts will feature:

• Thursday, Nov. 9: Cari Ray (Nashville, Ind.), Cole Woodruff (Indianapolis).

• Tuesday, Dec. 5: Flatland Harmony Experiment (Indianapolis), Black Market Vinyl (Greencastle).

Sponsors who make the series possible include WGRE, Music on the Square, Glen Furr Agency, Harvest by Red Barn Farms, Greencastle Music Center, SMF Payroll Services and Electra’s Acres.
