  •     The Abrams Brothers are fourth-generation musicians with musical roots reaching back to their great-grandparents.    
        Despite their age (early 20s), they have been touring together for more than a decade – and in the past few years, have become Canadian Festival favorites.         
        They are the youngest Canadians to appear at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. They’ve toured Europe, and several times have performed at the Jacob’s Ladder Folk Festival in Israel.   
        This fine trio, performing a combination of bluegrass, country and folkrock, will be appearing at in Crookston High School’s auditorium on Saturday, Oct. 26 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door. It’s the second concert in this season’s Crookston Artist and Entertainment Series.   
        The Abrams Brothers have recently released their fourth CD, Northern Redemption, which follows by a year the release of Blue On Brown, an album of songs by Arlo Guthrie and Bob Dylan. This record was the boys’ tribute to songwriters they had always admired. Even Arlo Guthrie, the legend himself, recognized the talent of these youngsters after he heard them playing his own songs at one of his shows and thought they were “way too young to be playing that good. I know I will be hearing from The Abrams Brothers for a long time to come.”   
        “The Abrams Brothers – John, James and cousin Elijah – playing guitar, violin and bass - have been blowing away audiences across North America, Europe and Israel for the past several years with their virtuosic 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.” – The Toronto Star.
