America's first family of Bluegrass"
America's first family of Bluegrass, Cherryholmes, brings their
hard-driving instrumentals and dynamic harmonies to the Clemens
Center in Downtown Elmira for one performance only on Wednesday,
April 1, 2009, at 7:30 p.m. For tickets contact the Clemens Center

Cherryholmes first stormed the top of the bluegrass world since
winning the 2005 IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association)
Award for Entertainer of the Year. Their self-titled album received
a 2006 Grammy Nomination for Best Bluegrass Album and their second
Grammy-nominated album "Black and White" came in at No. 1 on the
Billboard's Bluegrass Albums chart.
The Cherryholmes sound is made up of hard-driving instrumental
virtuosity and explosive vocal harmonies, featuring a mixture of
original songs written by members of the band and carefully chosen classics.
All six band members pull their creative ideas together, forming a
sound and a style that is unmistakably Cherryholmes. Their live
shows include twin fiddles, Irish step-dancing, classic country
yodeling, old-time claw hammer banjo, even
some soulful gospel singing in addition to their dynamic bluegrass.
Their vocals and instrumentation are aggressive without losing the
precision of smooth, blended family harmony.
