Kitchen Dwellers and Fireside Collective to play at Cohoes Music Hall, October 12th

COHOES – By mixing genres such as folk, rock, and bluegrass, with hints of psychedelic sounds, the Montana-based band, Kitchen Dwellers, easily captivates an audience. The quartet consisting of Shawn Swain on the mandolin, Torrin Daniels on the banjo, Joe Funk on the upright bass, and Max Davies on the acoustic guitar have played at iconic venues including Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks, next to well-known groups like The Infamous Stringdusters and Twiddle.

Over the past few years, the band has released two highly commended albums, Ghost In The Bottle [2017] and Muir Maid [2019], along with a dynamic live album titled Live from the Wilma [2021]. After the unprecedented success of these three works, a third studio album quickly became highly anticipated by the public. The band got right to work and released Wise River last year.

Joining Kitchen Dwellers that evening is the dimensional bluegrass band, Fireside Collective. Stemming from Asheville, North Carolina, Fireside Collective has used folk, funk, and blues, sounds in order to make their music distinct amongst other bluegrass-based groups.

Fireside Collective has had enormous success, including winning the 2016 Band Contest at MerleFest, being nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association Momentum Band of the Year award, and ambitiously embarking on a fast-paced touring schedule in which they have received great feedback from audiences all over.

Each member of Fireside Collective brings his own special contribution to the band. The band is made up of Joe Cicero (guitar); Alex Genova (banjo); Jesse Iaquinto (mandolin); Tommy Maher (resonator guitar) and Carson White (upright bass), and each contributes specific elements that help make up the band’s sound.

Both Kitchen Dwellers and Fireside Collective are certain to put on a show filled with creativity that you don’t want to miss out on.

The show will take place on Thursday, October 12th, at The Cohoes Music Hall from 8:00 – 11:00 PM. Both General admission and reserved seating tickets are available now. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit
