If you like the music of Fleetwood Mac, then this tribute band is for you. Even if you don't know who Fleetwood Mac is, then we think you will enjoy TUSK. As their web site states, "...TUSK takes its audience members on a sweet ride down memory lane." Their drummer, Tom Nelson, has a local connection—he is a music teacher at North Penn-Liberty High School and an Adjunct Percussion Faculty member at Bucknell University. TUSK is a band much in demand and tours extensively in the eastern United States. Door sale tickets--$25

Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley
Saturday, March 24, 2018

Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley photo

The question is: how can these Grammy-nominated artists get so much music out of two instruments—a guitar and a dobro? Their mastery is "lights out". Trey is also an accomplished singer with a resonant baritone voice. Rob is one of the finest dobro players ever and, in addition to his own music, has collaborated on many albums from other artists. Expect an eclectic mixture of blues, traditional, bluegrass, country and original songs and tunes. Door sale tickets--$20
