— Colebrook Road, an award-winning bluegrass band, will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6, at the Cooperage Project, 1030 Main St., Honesdale.

From modest beginnings as a four-piece band, Colebrook Road now plays as a five-piece ensemble and has become a familiar name throughout the Mid Atlantic region. It includes:

Jesse Eisenbise, lead singer, guitar player, and songwriter

Wade Yankey, mandolinist and winner of the 2014 Watermelon Park Fest mandolin contest

Jeff Campbell, upright bassist and tenor vocalist

Mark Rast, banjoist, bass vocalist, dobro player, and winner of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival banjo contest

Joe McAnulty, fiddler, baritone vocalist, and winner of the 2015 Deer Creek Fiddler’s Convention bluegrass fiddle contest

The songs they perform are almost exclusively original compositions with varying themes. The band writes intricate and dynamic arrangements filled with both vocal and instrumental harmony that creates an interestingly modern, complex, and varied sound while still adhering to the larger bluegrass genre.

The band won the 2016 D.C. Bluegrass Union’s Mid Atlantic Bluegrass band contest in Washington D.C., the 2015 Podunk Bluegrass Festival band contest in Hebron, Conn., the 2014 Watermelon Park Fest band contest in Berryville, Va., and the 2011 Pickin’ In The Panhandle Bluegrass Festival band contest in Martinsburg, W.V,

The suggested donation is $15 advance, or $20 at the door
