An award-winning progressive bluegrass band takes the stage Friday night at the Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck.
Flatt Lonesome dominated the 27th annual International Bluegrass Music Awards in September, winning Vocal Group of the Year, Album of the Year for their record "Runaway Train," and Song of the Year for "You're the One."
Formed in 2011, the band evolved from the Robertson family’s Florida bluegrass gospel band, Sandy Creek Revival. The Robertson kids branched out on their own with some of their friends, keeping true to their gospel, bluegrass roots.
Flatt Lonesome is comprised of Kelsi Robertson Harrigill (mandolin, vocals), Charli Robertson (fiddle, vocals), Buddy Robertson (guitar, vocals), Dominic Illingworth (acoustic bass), Paul Harrigill (banjo), and Michael Stockton (resophonic guitar).
Their career took off when they won the SPBGMA Band Competition in 2012 and signed a recording contract with Pisgah Ridge Records (a division of Mountain Home Records). They debuted at the Grand Ole Opry in 2015.
"Entertainment Weekly" did a story on the group when they were asked by SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction to do a bluegrass version of HBO's "Game of Thrones" theme song.
The concert is at 8 p.m. and tickets cost are $15-$39. Buy online or call the theater, 914.698.0098.
