On the Trail plays bluegrass Thurs., July 7 (UPDATE: Time changed to 7 PM)

On the Trail plays Best Video Film & Cultural Center on Thurs., July 7, starting at 5:30 PM 7 PM.

(UPDATE: This show was originally scheduled for outside at 5:30 PM. Due to our current inability to stage shows outside, it has been moved inside and will start at 7 PM.)

On The Trail is a modern acoustic quartet that explores everything from bluegrass to contemporary pop, from stunning instrumentals to beautiful traditional songs. The band bonded from their love of bluegrass and the band Punch Brothers, and has already gained recognition and praise for their exploration and strong execution of the challenging music, as well as for their new original music. On The Trail features Austin Scelzo (fiddle and vocals), Tom Polizzi (mandolin and vocals), and Charlie Widmer (guitar and vocals).

Although this might change by the day of the show, this is currently an indoor event due to the Town of Hamden canceling our outside shows pending getting permitting in place. Covid protocols for indoor shows are proof of vax and masks required.

No cover charge but please bring cash for the musicians’ tip jar—suggested donation of $10. This has been a real hard time for musicians, almost all of whom have seen their live performance income dry up. (There will also be a Best Video tip jar for donations.)

Parking available behind Best Video and on Thornton Street.
