A new Music at the Mill series at the historic Spencerville Mill promises to be the best to date. Words like country, rock, funk, soul, Motown, roots and bluegrass punctuate the billboard. This stellar musical event takes place in the Mill’s beautifully restored upper level which offers a unique space with great acoustics for audiences to get up-close with the music.
The 2017 line-up starts on June 23 with the lively Buckledown quartet generating a new country and classic rock vibe that has audiences leaping out of their seats to dance. The popular PepTides nine-member band then sounds off in July with its larger-than-life pop sound that mixes funk, electronic and disco influences into great entertainment. Next up, the sensational Soul Cracker classic soul and Motown band dominates in August with hits of the greats.
Once again, the Spencerville Mill is part of Ontario’s Festival of Small Halls in September. With The Good Lovelies and Elliott Brood having previously sold out, it is expected that eager music lovers are standing by to repeat the experience with the next designated well-known group – to be announced later this month. Rounding out the talent, The Pie Plates bring their great sound to life in October using guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and inventive vocal harmonies as they breeze through a collection of Americana, roots, bluegrass and country music.
