Summer Concert Series - Beg, Steal or Borrow
Formed in 2013, Beg, Steal or Borrow received substantial acclaim well before the release of their debut album, Old Mountain Time. Bluegrass Today proclaimed them to be a “Triple Crown Bluegrass Band” by virtue of the fact that they took home honors from regional bluegrass competitions in New York, Maine, and Connecticut. Although they’ve noted that their initial inspiration was drawn from Old and in the Way, the seminal acoustic bluegrass outfit helmed by Jerry Garcia and David Grisman, they’ve clearly exceeded expectations by creating an impressive repertoire of original songs that boast both contemporary and archival appeal.
The band is comprised of seasoned musicians from Northern Vermont and New Hampshire. Mandolinist Geoff Goodhue released an album with J.D. Hutchison and Tim O’Brien on Howdy Skies records and is a member of The Brian Bowers Band. Fiddler Roland Clark was a member of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra with whom he toured Europe and performed at Carnegie Hall. Roland channels Vassar Clements’ fiddling style so fully that you might close your eyes and believe Vassar is in the house. Banjo player Luke Auriemmo and Bassist Fran Forim are founders of Vermont’s widely known outlaw bluegrass quartet, The Mud City Ramblers, who have haunted Lamoille County for nearly 20 years. Guitarist and singer Jeremy Sicely comes from a long line of musicians and fronts The Hillside Rounders with his father and uncle and received The Times Argus 2016 male vocalist of the year for their Lighting In A Bottle album.
