The Ontario Center for Performing Arts — better known as the Oswego Music Hall — will be opening its 36th season with the American roots band from Syracuse, the Andrew and Noah Band, Saturday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m.
This seven-member group describes its music as alternative folk and American groove, and boasts a unique vision of the future of American root music with its powerful songwriting, explosive improv, and deep dance grooves.
The A&N’s core material, written by brothers Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand, is a mix of Appalachian, Celtic, classic country and bluegrass, jazz and swing, cajun/zydeco, alternative folk, roots rock and other world music influences.
Their sound is an eclectic blend, and yet it’s part of “ a movement of young like-minded musicians creating culturally relevant but historically rooted Americana music,” according to jazz musician Chris Miller.
