Friday, March 25

In a sea of string-driven indie folk, the Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based Rivers are very much floating their own boat.

Churning together a textured mix of Americana, folk, pop, funk, blues, and whatever other genres they feel exuding from their instruments, the all-acoustic trio takes the listener, thankfully, to some new-sounding sonic territory.

They’ve been busy touring and playing at concert venues, bars, open-air markets, street-corners and elsewhere around the region for quite some time, and Rivers’ sound will flow at a free show at Kings Rook Club on Friday, March 25.

“Whether playing in or out on the streets, this group changes it up and throws it down with surprising song and sound,” said a reviewer last year in the Burg, a Harrisburg area magazine.

Again, thanks for that, fellas. As “indie folk” becomes more and more of a generic label (and, in some – well, many – cases, kind of a generic sound), it’s always good to hear new artists that go at their own flow.

Rivers will be joined for the evening by special guest openers Jess Royer and Nick Warren, two Erie-based musicians also most definitely worth checking out. – Ryan Smith
