The Barley Jacks will bring bluegrass and more to the cultural center Friday

The Barley Jacks will play a concert of old time and bluegrass music at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center this Friday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m.

Virtuosity, magic and a little danger combine to make every Barley Jacks performance unique.

The first thing audiences notice is how much fun the group members have when they perform. These Minnesota-based music veterans enjoy performing together, and that’s obvious to anyone watching.

“The Barley Jacks are musicians’ musicians playing seriously good music,” said Ron Arsenault of the Rock Bend Music Festival. “If you can sit there and listen to these guys without smiling or tapping your toe, check your pulse.”

The Barley Jacks are masters of the fiddle, guitar, bass and drum, who meld their divergent backgrounds of blues and bluegrass, classical and Celtic, R & B and bebop to inspire each other and create something entirely new.

Front-man and fiddler Brian Wicklund is joined by Joe Cruz on guitar, Kevin Rowe on bass, and Joel Arpin on percussion.
