The Brummy Brothers will be serving up a hootenanny


Those lyrics fill their debut album, “Down to Pluck,” that was recorded in a 10-hour stretch last year on a warm August night.

Their songs are colorful and at times reach the threshold of being blush-inducing. And so far, people like what they hear.

“We have shared many highlights in our short time as a band.  Seeing the band grow and being accepted to many well-known venues and festivals is a huge part,” Brumberg said. “I think more rewarding then that is seeing people come back and see us again and singing along to the songs. We often get complimented on our songwriting and catchiness of songs which is a big accomplishment and part of why we have grown so quickly.”

In addition to performing at such noted venues as the Brooklyn Bowl, the Catskill Chill Music Festival and The Blockley in Philadelphia, the band has also opened for jazz legend Bill Evan.

“It’s always great performing at new places and inspiring people with music. We did a lot of traveling this summer, playing somewhere around 50 shows, most of which were in new places. It’s all a wonderful part of growing as a band,” said Brumberg.

The Brummy Brothers, a name Eric and his brother picked up in high school, are looking forward to performing at Turkey Hill and bringing their hard-to-peg style of music to a new crowd. 

“Bluegrass music — or whatever you want to call it —  is really rooted into the American people and everyone can relate to it in some way. People who do not feel that they like bluegrass have come up to us after a show and said they are now fans,” Brumberg said. “We truly love what we do and you will always walk away from a show with a positive experience in one way or another.”
