Oaksong Music Society presents Joy Kills Sorrow
This young band has a new CD out with Signature Records entitled “Darkness Sure Becomes This City”
With its bold new brand of acoustic music, Joy Kills Sorrow pushes right through the envelope and out the other side. The Boston-based stringband brings a decidedly modern sensibility to an old-world sound, channeling the prodigious talents of its individual members into elegant arrangements and well-crafted songs. While the group pays due homage to its Bluegrass roots—its name refers to one of the first radio stations to broadcast the music of Bill Monroe—the band truly excels in its rich and textured treatment of more contemporary material.
8PM Door Opens at 7:30 - Tickets $18 each
