at the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing


Preservation New Jersey is pleased to present Dark Whiskey in the wonderful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing to open our special 3-concert September Folk/Roots Festival!

Dark Whiskey is an American roots music quartet that performs a blend of country, bluegrass, blues and folk. The band mates met and played together repeatedly at many of the music jams once held at Cherry Grove Farm in Lawrenceville, NJ. While their lineup is often augmented by local guest musicians, the quartet comprises Gretchen Jaeckel on guitar & vocals; Brian Yank on fiddle, guitar & vocals; John Timpane on bass, guitar & vocals; and Bo Child on mandolin, bass & vocals.

Regarding their American roots music repertoire, Dark Whiskey is influenced by the work of such musical icons as EmmyLou Harris, Merle Haggard, Gillian Welch, Vince Gill, The Steeldrivers, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Steve Earl, just to name a few.
