With all six players in The New McKrells capable of lead singer status the harmony vocals of this collective of like minded musicians is stunning, the energy explosive, each song a gem.

They will perform at the McCrobie Civic Center in Oswego on Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m.

The line-up can be said to be a Who's Who of North Country Roots Music, with each player a top draw in their own right. Starting with songwriter John Kribs on banjo and both electric & acoustic guitar and Orion Kribs, a world class mandolin player capable of the break neck speed and nuanced solo work needed to perform in a Kevin McKrell band.

Arlin Greene is a bassist of exceptional abilities, whether it is a high energy bluegrass stomp or Celtic ballad, Greene's bass is the foundation the band’s songs are built upon. It is widely known thoughout the northeast that if you need a great fiddler call Doug Moody and percussionist Brian Melick, is worth the price of the ticket all by himself.

Behind all of this is Kevin McKrell . Kevin has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Scotland and Italy. His songs have been covered by bands all over the world— The Kingston Trio, The Fureys, Woods Tea Company, Hair of The Dog, to name a few. With each player in The New McKrells capable of lead singer status the harmony vocals of this collective of like minded musicians is stunning, the energy explosive, each song a gem.
