Quimby Mountain Band will be the opening act for national recording artists, Rusted Root, at a special show at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Thursday night, Dec. 11. Quimby previously opened up for Railroad Earth at the Sherman, has appeared twice at the Great Pocono Raceway Festival in Stroudsburg, and this past year headlined their own show at the downtown theater.
Rusted Root, which formed in 1990, hails from Pittsburgh, PA. The band is known for its unique fusion of acoustic, rock, world and other styles of music, with a strong percussion that draws from African, Latin American, and Native American influences. Their lyrical content varies greatly.
Quimby Mountain Band, meanwhile, continues to be a top drawing act in the Greater Northwest New Jersey region. The band is currently working on its fourth album. Its third disc, simply titled Quimby Mountain III, received solid reviews. Loren Kessell, writing for the Aquarian Weekly, noted that "Quimby's third album demonstrates the depth of their music, with each song telling its own story. It's a blend of musical styles that boasts individual personalities while seamlessly tying the disc together."
