Zink & Co bring Country Bluegrass styles to Farmington’s North Church

New England Celtic Arts will present Zink & Co at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 23, at North Church, 118 High St., in Farmington. A Gifford’s Ice Cream social will begin at 6 p.m. and a jam session begins at 6:15 p.m.. Audience members are encouraged to bring their musical instruments to the jam sessions.

Zink & Company consists of four musicians with years of combined recording and performance experience. Joining guitarist and lead vocalist Corey Zink are Larry Neu, banjo and vocals; John Roc, mandolin and vocals; and Ray Evans, bass and vocals. The group has performed at numerous festivals on the east coast and Canada, entertaining audiences with original and traditional songs executed in vibrant harmony. Zink & Co. is firmly rooted in the traditions of the early decades of bluegrass and country music. The band can be counted on for their unique and dynamic renditions of old favorites. The group delivers powerful musicianship combined with lonesome harmonies blended with Zink’s smooth lead baritone vocal, which sounds just as much at home with a driving bluegrass tune as it does a tear-filled country weeper. Zink sings from the heart and the majority of his original tunes have been written about personal experiences or stories of love and heartbreak. The Zink & Co. members have come together to create the perfect recipe of entertainment with a tight, cohesive sound.
