Locally-based family band Edna’s Kin will perform a mix of Americana favorites, including country music, blues, and bluegrass at Christ Episcopal Church in Sag Harbor this Sunday, September 29 at 2 p.m.
The band became an internet sensation after posting their wildly popular “Iron Man—the Bluegrass Version” video, featuring a twangy, Appalachian-style rendition of the Black Sabbath classic, on YouTube in 2010. On Sunday, Edna’s Kin will be premiering their latest video, “The Country Bride Of Frankenstein” and it’s sure to be another hit.
Conceived by the band’s fiddler Andrew Koontz and filmed over the summer, the video is a tribute to the classic horror film The Bride of Frankenstein.
Edna’s Kin is a family band featuring local musician Dan Koontz, his brother Andrew and their father Warren Koontz performing American roots music as well as original songs. Dan and his father play guitar, Andrew plays bass and fiddle, and all three sing. They have performed throughout New York, New Jersey and Florida, and their “Iron Man” video (featured below) has more than 90,000 views on YouTube.
On the 29th, Edna’s Kin will be joined by local harmonica player Don Schmitz.
A reception with local cider will follow the concert.
Tickets are $15 ($10 student) in advance and $20 at the door. They can be purchased ahead of time at Canio’s Books (290 Main Street) in Sag Harbor.
All profits benefit the Christ Church Organ Fund, which has nothing to do with transplants and everything to do with music. Christ Episcopal Church is located on the corner of Hampton Street and East Union Street in Sag Harbor.
