Hochstein at High Falls: Aaron Lipp & Bobby Henrie
Event summary
Join us for a free lunchtime concert in High Falls, featuring Aaron Lipp & Bobby Henrie.
Event details

Singing lonesome harmonies on old Delmore Brothers classics, Aaron Lipp and Bobby Henrie breathe new life into banjo/fiddle duets while they both switch off on every instrument. Their impressive dual flatpicking arrangements make them a one-of-a-kind regional classic. The youngest of the five Henrie Brothers who tore up the festival stages since the ‘70s, Bobby was a hot young flatpicking star whose dedication to old-time, bluegrass, rockabilly, jazz and more has earned him a place as a mentor to many young roots musicians around the region. Aaron Lipp has been touring since the age of 15 and has found home in traditional Appalachian old-time music, classic bluegrass sounds, and the blues – all fused into a new sound of the next generation, while paying tribute to the traditions. https://aaronlipp.com

Hochstein at High Falls concerts are presented by High Falls Business Association, The Hochstein School, and WXXI.

Hanna PK channels a wide variety of the blues, from pre-war styles to ‘50s and ‘60s Chicago blues to boogie-woogie, as well as influences from jazz and swing. People often use the expression ‘tickling the ivories,’ but if you see the way Hanna plays, it’s anything but tickling. Her solid left hand reflects on those traditional blues masters’ rocking and shuffling bass patterns, while her right hand grooves along, dancing all over those 88s, and also adding her sultry voice. In June 2018, Hanna and guitarist Aleks Disljenkovic won first place at Memphis Bound. They represented Western New York at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn., in January 2019 and made a strong first impression, making it to the Semi-Finals. http://hannapk.com/index.html
