Get up on your feet and dance to some classic fiddle tunes from Aaron Lipp and Bobby Henrie at Hochstein at High Falls. Bring a tasty lunch, lounge in the summer sunlight, and receive your weekly fix of delightful bluegrass music.

The High Falls Business Association has once again teamed up with The Hochstein School and WXXI to present Hochstein at High Falls, a noontime summer concert series. The series includes ten outdoor concerts Thursday afternoons at 12:10 pm during June, July and August. Weather permitting, they will be held in the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge and will feature a diverse mix of musical artists and instructors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a great lunch at area restaurants (like La Luna and Fina's Cafe). Each performance runs approximately 50 minutes.

Singing lonesome harmonies on old Delmore Brothers classics, Aaron Lipp and Bobby Henrie breathe new life into banjo/fiddle duets while they both switch off on every instrument. Their impressive dual flatpicking arrangements make them a one-of-a-kind regional classic. The youngest of the five Henrie Brothers who tore up the festival stages since the ‘70s, Bobby was a hot young flatpicking star whose dedication to old-time, bluegrass, rockabilly, jazz and more has earned him a place as a mentor to many young roots musicians around the region. Aaron Lipp has been touring since the age of 15 and has found home in traditional Appalachian old-time music, classic bluegrass sounds, and the blues – all fused into a new sound of the next generation, while paying tribute to the traditions.
