The Faulkner County Library will host the Josh Love Band at 7 p.m. Jan. 6, 2012.
This acoustic bluegrass quartet performs its varied repertoire in a new bluegrass style. Material comes from both traditional and contemporary sources, with a song collection ranging from Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Rodney Crowell, to Gordon Lightfoot and Flatt and Scruggs.
The band includes two generations of musicians who have studied bluegrass and related styles of music for most of their lives. The guitarist for the band is Josh Love, the youngest member, born in 1983. His musical interest began at the age of 8, when his Grandpa, the upright bassist Don Love, began taking him to local bluegrass festivals. Mandolinist Bill Nesbitt has played and sung all his life, performing as a bluegrass band member since 1979. The banjoist for the band is William B. "Banjo Bill" Anderson. Glenn Waldo, a prize-winning Arkansas Bluegrass bass player, helped form the distinctive sound of the Josh Love Band in 2008.
