The Monadnock Folklore Society welcomes Ethan Robbins back to the Nelson Town Hall on Friday, March 20 for a 7:30 p.m. concert.

Robbins is the guitarist/songwriter of Americana band and Boston-based, Cold Chocolate, a genre-bending Americana band that fuses folk, funk, and bluegrass to create a unique sound all their own. Robbins began his bluegrass career at Oberlin College where he began to explore how this hard-driving fast-paced genre could be stretched.

A classical violinist from age four, Robbins fell in love with the guitar when he turned 14 and his father bought him five quintessential albums: The Band’s “Music from Big Pink,” Bob Dylan’s “Bringing it all Back Home,” John Hartford’s “Steam Powered Aereo-plane,” Hank Williams “Live at the Grand Ole Opry,” and the Grateful Dead’s “Workingman’s Dead.” Ever since, Robbins has attempted to bring those raw, rootsy sounds into his own original material. His band, Cold Chocolate, has established itself as a force in the Americana genre. Robbins and his band have shared bills with Leftover Salmon and David Grisman, and regularly perform at venues and music festivals up and down the East Coast.

Admission is $15, and $12 for seniors and juniors.
