Tiger Maple String Band Warms up Winter at Sprague’s by Ryan Smith

Friday, Dec. 30

A late December evening in wintry northwestern Pennsylvania is a fine time to catch some music – especially the kind of stuff that’s rooted in both present and past, with its ties close to the heartstrings.

Tiger Maple String Band, a talented group of some of the region’s finest progenitors of Appalachian string music traditions, are just the folks to provide that. And Sprague Farm & Brew Works, just outside of Cambridge Springs in northern Crawford County, is just the place to experience it. The Edinboro-based quintet will play Sprague’s on Friday, Dec. 30 from 6 to 9 p.m.

TMSB are a staple act of the region’s live acoustic music scene, especially during the summer’s various open-air, family-friendly, laid-back musical gatherings. So getting the chance to catch them at such a cool location in December – with Sprague’s fine offerings and ruggedly beautiful atmosphere as accompaniment – should definitely help to warm the winter’s chill. – Ryan Smith
