Sean K. Preston
The music of Sean K. Preston draws heavily on the influences of the classic heartbroken sounds of Country & Western music from the 40’s through the 70’s, the honesty of the Blues by the likes of Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker, the bombast of 50’s Rock’n’Roll, the lyrical sophistication of musical poets like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, the raw energy of Punk and the spirituality of Mountain Gospel. His songs range from delicate laments and lullabies to fiery sermons and confessions.
The Martin Brothers
S t r a i g h t - ahead bluegrass is what’s
in store when you experience The Martin Brothers & Aspen Run. Based in Maryland near the bluegrass hotbeds of Baltimore and Washington DC, the band is heavily influenced by the sounds of Jimmy Martin, The Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, The Johnson Mountain Boys and Del McCoury, a regular Traditional Bluegrass 101 course of study. While some of the members look young, they definitely capture the vibe of the masters as they play throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
Frederick Rock School
Frederick Rock School provides a safe after school facility for our students. The students have all access to hang out in the lounge and play air hockey, ping pong, jam with their peers, do homework in our quiet area with Internet access or grab a bite to eat at the Rock Bar. We use a creative approach to music instruction. F.R.S. not only provides 1-on-1 private lessons for our students, we also provide the opportunity to learn in a band setting working towards a real live performance in a real rock and roll club. Students are inspired and motivated to practice when they see an exciting reachable goal.
