LEWISTON — The award-winning bluegrass band Back To Basics will play Sunday, Aug. 29, at Marion T. Morse Park.

Based in the midcoast area, the band has been performing for audiences throughout the Northeast and Canada for more than 15 years. It specializes in traditional and original bluegrass music with an emphasis on solid vocal harmonies.

Members are Gene Groves on lead and guitar; Ray Berard, rhythm guitar; Eben Greenleaf, banjo; Bernie Coombs, bass fiddle; and Brian Daniels, mandolin.

Reminiscent of the early days of bluegrass music, the Back To Basics stage show incorporates the use of a single microphone. Lead vocal duties are shared by GGroves and Daniels with Berard and Coombs contributing harmony vocals. The band’s original material ranges from love ballads to novelty numbers.

Back To Basics has produced two recording projects, “Some Things Never Change” and “Havin’ More Fun Than Normal Folk.”
