Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand will perform their unique brand of acoustic folk at 3 p.m. Sunday May 1 at Marcellus First Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of Main and North streets.
All proceeds will benefit the Mission goals of The Marcellus First Presbyterian Church, which include the Marcellus Ecumenical Food Pantry, ECHO meals on Wheels, the Central New York Food Consortium, the Samaritan Center, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance in New Orleans and Church World Services worldwide. The brothers will perform for two hours with a brief intermission.
The VanNorstrand brothers make most of their music with fiddles, guitars and mandolins. Andrew adds banjo and Noah percussion. Noah's wife Kailyn will also add vocals for a song or two.
Their music is rooted in country and bluegrass with a touch of celtic on the side. Noah and Andrew are originally from Fulton and now spend much of their time criss-crossing North America with their unique style, high-energy performances and creative arrangements. They received national exposure by performing live on Garrison Keillors's nationally syndicated program, "A Prairie Home Companion," as finalists in the Talent from Twelve to Twenty competition.
