Ithaca-based banjo player Richie Stearns (of Donna the Buffalo, and The Horseflies) and fiddler Rosie Newton (The Duhks, Red Dog Run) are a spirited duo playing Americana. Country, folk, and bluegrass is wound into their strings. They've been makin' sweet harmonies for 4 years and put out their freshman project, "Tractor Beam," in 2013. It's 12 tracks of honest, old-timey front porch healing. This show is hosted by the folk singing society, Golden Link.
Richie & Rosie play Saturday, January 16, at Rochester Christian Reformed Church, 2750 Atlantic Avenue. $10-$20. goldenlink.org; richieandrosie.com.
