With this year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive event—scheduled for Sept. 23rd and 24th—expanding to two days with a massive lineup of over 150+ musicians and some of the most eclectic collaborations you will see this side of late-nights at Jazz Fest, we’ve decided to take a deeper look at some of the acts that appear on the bill. First up is the Metropolitan Jamgrass Alliance. The Alliance features some of the top bluegrass players in the scene, including violinist/guitarist Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth), guitarist Andy Falco (The Infamous Stringdusters), and mandolinist Jacob Joliff (Yonder Mountain String Band), ensuring what will be a can’t-miss set.Brooklyn Comes Alive Announces Supergroup Formations, Daily LineupsAn original member of Railroad Earth since its inception back in 2001, multi-instrumentalist Tim Carbone‘s deft playing and understanding of the bluegrass, celtic, rock, and jazz genres are clearly witnessed both in the studio and in the live setting. However, his talents also lend themselves to having a keen ear behind the production booth, as Carbone has worked with bands/artists such as Greensky Bluegrass, David Gans, Great American Taxi, and many more over the years.Coming from Long Island, roots guitarist Andy Falco joined The Infamous Stringdusters during the early stages of the band’s career back in 2007. The group has been nominated for a Grammy Award and won several awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, including Emerging Artist of the Year back in 2007. When not delving into deep, complex jams with the Stringdusters, Andy sticks close to home playing with his brothers Patrick and Tom, along with Fred Golik as The Falco Brothers.Mandolinist Jacob Joliff became an official member of long-time progressive bluegrass act Yonder Mountain String Band back in 2015 (after touring with the band throughout 2014) along with fiddle player Allie Kral. He began playing the mandolin at seven years old while growing up in Newburg, OR, and eventually went on to study at the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston. Joliff now resides in New York City and plays around town with various friends and his own Jacob Joliff Band when not on tour with Yonder.Each of the core three musicians on tap for the Metropolitan Jamgrass Alliance is based in the greater metropolitan New York area, which spurred the concept for their collaboration. They will also be joined by bassist Patrick Falco (Andy’s brother and bandmate in The Falco Brothers) and banjo player Ryan Cavanaugh to round out their crew. Together, these polished and seasoned veterans of the bluegrass scene are poised to deliver psychedelic, foot-stomping, barley-laced, ale-drinking, Appalachia-style music for the BCA faithful to enjoy. You can catch them on Sunday, September 24th, at Brooklyn Comes Alive.Metropolitan Jamgrass Alliance Full Band:Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth)Andy Falco (The Infamous Stringdusters)Jacob Jolliff (Yonder Mountain String Band)Ryan CavanaughPatrick FalcoSome of the other acts to appear on the lineup will be an Allman Brothers Band Tribute ft. members of moe., Snarky Puppy, Bernard Purdie and more, A Tribute to Jamiroquai ft. members of The Motet, TAB, and RAQ, moe.queous ft. members of moe. and Aqueous, Eric Krasno & Friends w/ John Scofield, George Porter Jr., Cyril Neville, and more, and special sets from DJ Premier & The Badder Band, as well as The Crystal Method, and a list that goes on and on.
