This Rochester-based folk outfit brings together members of the Windsor Folk Family, RootsCollider, Blackened Blues, and Sparx and Yarms. The resulting amalgamation is a deeply affecting foray into what you could call neo-Americana. The band's unique approach to Old-timey Appalachian tunes is positively informed by, and infused with, the members' rock, blues, funk, and electronica pedigrees. It's a distinct breed of folk music that is, despite a healthy respect for its roots, absolutely modern.
The Younger Gang performs Saturday, September 21, 7 p.m. at Abilene, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $6-$10. abilenebarandlounge.com.
