Expect plenty of picking-and-grinning when music-loving friends and family join forces for the Hellman Spring Stomp at Sweetwater Music Hall on Sunday, March 19. The evening of American roots music will feature the Go To Hell Man Band - the children, grandchildren, friends and band mates of the late, great Warren Hellman, founder of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival. The band was formed so that his family could carry forward their own expression of roots and Americana music, which Warren so loved and worked so hard to bring to larger audiences. There are now five separate Hellman combos, most of whom will be performing at this semi-annual Hellman Stomp. This promises to be a fine and fun evening of music and surprises, including special guests, The Quitters.
Opening band The Quitters trio consists of a right-side up finger picker (Stevie Coyle), an upside-down flat picker (Glenn “Houston” Pomianek), and an upright bassist (Chris Kee). They were the three original members of The Waybacks quintet.
Doors open at 5:30 pm; music starts at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $20 per person. Sweetwater Music Hall is located at 19 Corte Madera Avenue in Mill Valley.
