  • HAWLEY - On Saturday, May 3rd, Harmony Presents one of Northeast Pennsylvania’s favorite bluegrass bands, the Coal Town Rounders. This hard-driving driving four-piece traditional bluegrass band is made up of mandolin, guitar, banjo, bass & tight harmonies from various parts of NEPA.
         "Drawing influence from all types of old time string bands, bluegrass standards and some modern tunes, this show is sure to make grandma dance and little junior click his heals," Jill Carletti, Creative Director, stated.
              With a decidedly frenetic nod to the Lester Flatt/Foggy Mountain Boys era of Earl Scruggs, and the Opry-infused, honky-tonk bluegrass of classic rhinestoned acts like The Osborne Brothers, the Coal Town Rounders pay homage to a glorious, toothpick-in-mouth backwoods chorus past, with the creative sensibility that comes from stories being handed down with just a slight twist to the tale upon each new recitation.
        "Be prepared for a good foot stompin' time with one of Northeast PA's favorite bluegrass groups," Carletti added.
            Harmony Presents concerts and shows take place in the underground theater of the Hawley Silk Mill located at 8 Silk Mill Drive in Hawley. The theater is also known as the Boiler Room, since it was indeed once, the actual boiler room of the Hawley Silk Mill. The theater overlooks the falls shared with Ledges Hotel and audiences are encouraged to arrive early for preferred seating. Tickets for this show are $16 in advance and $20 at the door. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.harmonypresents.com or in person at AMSkier Insurance Agency located at 209 Main Avenue in Hawley.
         Cocoon caters wine, beer, snacks and mixed drinks on site at the shows and an advance ticket serves as a coupon for 20 percent off Glass Wine Bar & Bistro after the show.
