Troy Public Library and Underground Railroad History Project are partnering to bring you this special performance by artists The Heavenly Echoes and JV & The Cutters. Having several members in common, the two groups present two distinct styles of Americana. The Heavenly Echoes perform traditional gospel songs and spirituals with the deep sounds of 60’s Southern soul. JV & The Cutters play “the new urban blues,” fusing rock, funk and jazz to original electric blues. This free performance is a not to be missed opportunity to experience authentic roots music.
