Wayfarer’s to perform at Rent Party

| March 5, 2014

COSHOCTON – Join the Pomerene Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. Friday, March 7, as they welcome The Wayfarers for the March Rent Party.

The Wayfarers, a Southeast Ohio roots band, emerged onto the music scene in early 2010. Much of their music is drawn from Appalachian dance music, traditional mountain fiddle tunes, and pre-bluegrass music of the 1920s. The group is an embodiment of the energy that characterizes early mountain music. Their enthusiasm is infectious and draws people of all ages with the sounds of thumping washtub bass, driving guitars, sawing fiddles and rich harmonies.

The Wayfarers maintain an active performance schedule around Ohio playing at such well known venues as the Ohio Valley Oprey, Coney Island, Mickey’s Mountain and live on WOUB FM. They have been heard locally in Roscoe Village and at the Chocolate Extravaganza. They were invited back to the Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival 2014.

The group has released two albums – Breaking Old Ground (2013), Fire On the Hillside (2012) and an self titled EP, The Wayfarers (2011) – in the short three years they have been together.

In an effort to help meet their monthly gas bill the Pomerene Center throws a Rent Party the First Friday of the month Oct-April. Doors open at 7 p.m. for great music and good times (especially if you bring your friends). The Pomerene Center for the Arts is located at 317 Mulberry. Suggested donation is $10 at the door.
