One Longfellow Square will host Beg, Steal, or Borrow from 8 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29, at the 181 State St. venue in Portland.

They will play traditional and improvisational bluegrass and roots music and are known for their warm harmonies, virtuosic instrumentals, and tight-knit musical interplay.

The band got its start recreating the iconic “Old and In the Way” album for a performance at Higher Ground in Burlington, Vermont in 2013. Since their debut, they have developed a passionate regional following and broadened their repertoire to include a deep list of covers as well as strong original songs and instrumentals, many of which are featured on their 2019 full-length CD, “Old Mountain Time.” They’ve headlined at top venues throughout northern New England and have appeared at many of the leading east coast festivals including Greyfox, Podunk, Green Mountain Bluegrass and Roots, Thomas Point Beach, Jenny Brook, and Winter WonderGrass, winning three band competitions along the way.

The band is comprised of seasoned musicians residing throughout Northern Vermont and New Hampshire. Mandolinist Geoff Goodhue released an album with J.D. Hutchison and Tim O’Brien on Howdy Skies records and is a member of The Brian Bowers Band. Fiddler Roland Clark was a member of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra with whom he toured Europe and performed at Carnegie Hall. Roland channels Vassar Clements’ fiddling style so fully that you might close your eyes and believe Vassar is in the house. Banjo player Luke Auriemmo and Bassist Fran Forim are founders of Vermont’s widely known outlaw bluegrass quartet, The Mud City Ramblers, who have haunted Lamoille County for nearly 20 years. Guitarist and singer Jeremy Sicely comes from a long line of musicians and fronts The Hillside Rounders with his Father and Uncle and received The Times Argus 2016 male vocalist of the year for their Lighting In A Bottle album.

Tickets cost $12 in advance, or $15 day of show.
