In existence for more than 30 years, the Oswego Music Hall offers mostly acoustical musicians every other Saturday night from September to June. On concert evenings, a large empty hall is transformed into an intimate venue replete with candlelit tables, professional staging and sound; as well as an array of freshly baked desserts, hot cider and freshly brewed coffee.

This week, the six-member McKrells take the Oswego Music Hall stage. This line-up can be said to be a Who's Who of North Country Roots Music, with each player a top draw in their own right. The band features songwriter John Kribs on banjo and both electric and acoustic guitar; Orion Kribs, a world-class mandolin player; Arlin Greene, a bassist of exceptional abilities; fiddler Doug Moody; and percussionist Brian Melick. Behind it all is Kevin McKrell, who has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Scotland and Italy. His songs have been covered by bands all over the world- The Kingston Trio, The Fureys, Woods Tea Company, Hair of The Dog, to name a few.
