The DubHub Open Stage on Friday, Oct. 5, will feature The Grumbling Rustics, a Monadnock duo that have been together for over 15 years. They are known for their exquisite instrumental performances of Celtic and American fiddle tunes.

Tim Mowry, from Harrisville, plays mandolin and guitar and Steve Jones, from Peterborough, plays guitar and banjo. Jones and Mowry met at Del Rossi’s Trattoria in Dublin, and soon formed the Grumbling Rustics. Their album, “The Grumbling Rustics: Fiddle Tunes for Guitar and Banjo,” is a real gem. Of the album, legendary Italian guitarist Beppe Gambetta says, “… nice choices, arrangements and execution, a new breath of life in the old-time world.”

The duo performs regularly at area venues, including Sunflowers in Jaffrey and at the Meeting House Open Stage in Rindge.

Doors open at 7 p.m., the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is free, but the DubHub will “pass the hat.” Attendees are encouraged to bring a snack to share. Coffee and tea will be available, or BYOB.

Open stage performers can sign up by email at info@dublincommunitycenter.org, for one of nine 10-minute slots.

The Dublin Community Center is located at 1123 Main St.
