HONESDALE, PA — The Blind Owl Band will perform at The Cooperage on Friday, August 29. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

The band, which formed in Saranac Lake, NY in 2011, calls its own brand of contemporary northern bluegrass “Adirondack freight train string music.” Its current album, “This Train We Ride is Made of Wood and Steel,” is described as “a testament to their past whilst forging a path where their sound is becoming uniquely their own” (Upstate Live, New York State’s Music Guide).

Band members are Arthur Buezo on guitar and vocals, Christian Cardiello on bass, Eric Munley on mandolin and vocals, and James Ford on banjo and vocals.

The Cooperage, 1030 Main St., provides chairs for the listening crowd, but reserves open floor space for dancing. BYOB. Donations collected at the door.
