The Abrams Brothers will perform in Merrill at 7 p.m. March 16.
Join the Merrill Area Concert Association at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 16, in the Prairie River Middle School Auditorium for its fourth concert of the season, The Abrams Brothers.
Born into a four-generation touring bluegrass family, John and James Abrams have been on stage in the family business since they were ages 7 and 10. Their musical style is a combination of country, folk and bluegrass music.
Drawing from influences as diverse as The Beach Boys and Neil Young, The Abrams Brothers fuse bluegrass with country and folk-rock. Their song lyrics draw heavily on landscapes of the Canadian wilderness, merging these images with themes of love, loneliness and restless ambition.
Together as The Abrams Brothers for more than 10 years, the band became the youngest Canadians ever to perform at the Grand Ole Opry, recently was nominated for Group of the Year by the Country Music Association of Ontario, and recently opened for Canadian concerts by Alan Jackson and the Dixie Chicks.
