Chance & Tessa McCoy, Little Maggie
Feb. 17/LOWELL – First–ever Cabin Fever Concert from 3-5 p.m. at the Historic Graham House.

Chance and Tessa McCoy are contemporary masters of Appalachian folk music. Natives of West Virginia, they have been awarded the highest honors in traditional music, including a Grammy for best folk album through Chance’s work with Old Crow Medicine Show, and an exhaustive list of blue ribbon wins for Tessa as a champion fiddler. Little Maggie lovingly infuses sweet vocal harmonies and tasteful instrumental accompaniment into songs old and new from the mountains of West Virginia. Admission is $18 at the door.

Dailey & Vincent
Feb. 24/PRINCETON – 7-11 p.m. at the Chuck Mathena Center. A powerful ensemble steeped in bluegrass and country music traditions, but blessed with the drive, talent, and charisma to assert those timeless values proudly onto today’s stage. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent have already had a profound impact on much of the best modern bluegrass via their contributions to such estimable performers as Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, and Rhonda Vincent & The Rage. In 2004, Darrin and Jamie recorded “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem” as a duet for a bluegrass Christmas compilation album. The response was explosive. Brilliant performances from two men who sound born to sing together, delivered with a thrilling blend of clarity, precision, and soul. More at Collegiatetimes.
