The Abrams Brothers on Fri, January 25, 2013

“Bluegrass is the backdrop of this group but they fit somewhere nicely in between the country and non country worlds that could potentially find them love from both.”
—Matt Wells, Much Music

“While Kingston, Ont., bluegrass trio The Abrams Brothers may be fresh-faced, sweet-voiced and ready for the spotlight, they’re anything but a Canuck version of those Jonas siblings. The Abrams Brothers John, James, and cousin Elijah have been blowing away audiences across North America, Europe and Israel for the past several years with their virtuoso playing and effortless harmonies. Fourth-generation musicians whose musical roots stem back to their great-grandparents, the Abrams draw on a long family tradition of performing and recording bluegrass and folk music. Recent Toronto performances have seen even veteran musicians marvel at the mastery of their instruments, which all three began playing as young children.”

“Hillside Festival has built its reputation by showcasing performers on the cusp of stardom. It continued this tradition with the Abrams Brothers who showed why they are on their way to becoming the best bluegrass band ever produced in Canada. The teens blew the roof off the Island Stage with exciting, high energy original songs, traditional bluegrass and revved-up, bluegrass renditions of a range of folk.”
