Join us at the Hook & Ladder for a celebration of Switched At Birth’s third studio recording, A Labor of Love.  Since 1998, this acoustic group has been entertaining folks with their wide array of musical styles at clubs, festivals, and various regional events. On any given performance, you can expect to hear bluegrass, folk, blues, country, Cajun, Irish, and rock & roll.
Switched  At Birth are Rick Anderson – guitar, banjo & vocals; Pam Kolupailo – guitar & vocals; Mark Briere – mandolin & vocals; Mark Rizzardi – bass & vocals, and Catie Jo Pidel – fiddle.
Their mission is to have fun, and it shows!

Cousin Dad appears at first to be a typical bluegrass band, but when the music begins you’ll be greeted with a very atypical joy and animation in performing. There are no stiff-jointed, glazed-eyed bluegrass purists, but a loose and limber romp into Latin country blues, jazz, fiddle tunes, bluegrass, Motown, and old-timey. They play the songs they love and they love to play together: that is the great fun of a Cousin Dad performance.
A Cousin Dad show has an easy warmth like a late night jam session after all the music prudes have gone to bed – the joyful music that erupts from a group of friends at 4 a.m. around the camp fire.
