Alt-country-rock band Massy Ferguson to play Friday


Roots Americana band Massy Ferguson will perform from 6-8:30 p.m. Friday at Three Rivers Winery, 5641 W. Highway 12.

The quartet, currently on tour throughout the Northwest, combines steady, blue-collar alt-country with Southern rock which is reminiscent of the classic Americana of the Blasters, the Jayhawks and the Backsliders.

The songs, filled with barflies, broken hearts and doomed late-night romance, would sound pretty good anywhere," according to the band's website.

Singer-bassist Ethan Anderson said, "the sound is Americana that leans more toward rock than country, and that's a pretty good description. Think Drive-By Truckers or some combination of Son Volt and The Hold Steady. Think Springsteen's 'Greetings From Asbury Park' or 'Nebraska.'

"Those are all influences, as is 1970s Southern rock and good-time classic rock bands like Thin Lizzy."

Tickets are $8 for lawn seating, $42 for a table of four and $58 for a table for six.

Table seating is limited. For reservations call 526-9463 or online at
