The Graveblankets

Led by songwriter Chris Arduser [the Bears, the Psychodots], Cincinnati’s the Graveblankets have channeled Midwestern pop/folk/country/alt into a twangy soul stew over the past two decades. On their most recent effort, Error Avenue, the group showcases their unique fusion of classic American musical forms and modern songwriting chops. As Arduser spins out heartfelt yarns, fiddle player Rosie Carson provides delicate textures and beautiful harmonies as guitarist George Cunningham punctuates the arrangements. The band will be performing to benefit this year’s chosen recipient for Caitlin’s Smiles charity, benefitting children facing life-threatening illnesses. The Graveblankets will perform on Friday, April 1 at Greenmont Village Hall, 20 Rembrandt Blvd. in Kettering. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.Admission is $10. BYOB.
