The Darnell Boys of Athens will perform at 7 p.m. Jan. 18 at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts, 125 W. Doyle St. in Toccoa, as part of the New Harmonies Concert Series.
The concert is free.
Formed in late 2010, the Darnell Boys originally consisted of three brothers: Austin (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Caleb (lead guitar, slide guitar, vocals) and Gus Darnell (guitar, harmonica, percussion, vocals). The band was expanded to include Elijah Neesmith on upright bass and Patrick Weise on junkyard percussion.
The group’s sound is a diverse blend of American musical elements that draw upon blues, country, gospel, soul and rockabilly traditions, all centered upon the three brothers’ unique songwriting and vocal work.
Barry Stiles, curator of the Foxfire Museum, will present a workshop on roots music at 2 p.m. Jan. 19 as part of the New Harmonies series.
Foxfire is a not-for-profit, educational and literary organization based in Rabun County.
