Tiger Maple String Band will once again return to Edinboro’s Goodell Gardens Barn Stage and Homestead Friday, July 14th from 7 to 9 at night. If you’re a fan of a band that has rich historical and cultural values, supporting local artists like Tiger Maple String Band is an easy decision. This Edinboro-based band has been a longtime staple of some of the region’s best old-timey string music. Playing together since 1999, the band draws its inspiration from a variety of different musical directions, with a heavy Appalachian influence. These fiddle tunes, ballads of mountain and murder, coal-mining songs, and wonderful originals make up a set that leaves their audience with a lasting impression. The Edinboro natives have been busy in recent weeks playing in the Great Blue Heron Music festival and ramping up for summer. As part of their Summer Music Series, Goodell Gardens and Homestead will host the group, lead by Lori Burke on vocals and guitar, Justine and Alison Parker on fiddle, Barry Smith on banjo and vocals, and Fred Parker on guitar and vocals. - Austin Mitchell
