Thursday, April 4th: Melody Allegra plays bluegrass

what: Live bluegrass by Melody Berger

when: Thursday, April 4th

time: 8 pm – 10 pm

cost: free

We’re super excited to welcome Melody for her first gig at The Drink. You know we love some bluegrass tunes, and she’s such a pro. For this show she’ll be playing with Elio Schiavo, front man for the Six Deadly Venoms. Expect a lot of pretty harmony singing, friends.

Melody has been playing violin since the age of five and is classically trained in both violin and voice. She fell in love with bluegrass/old time music around 7 years ago and has been raising a ruckus in the NYC area ever since, branching out into all manner of folk genres.

In addition to regularly playing at regional favorites like The Jalopy Theater, The Living Room, Rodeo Bar, Rockwood Music Hall, and Philly’s Tin Angel and World CafĂ© Live, Melody has gotten to rock out at places like the top of Rockefeller Center and the renowned Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. She has also placed in the lauded Galax Fiddlers’ Convention bluegrass fiddle contest.

Here she is dancing/playing/singing simultaneously at the 6th annual John Hartford weekend on Jan. 26, 2013.
