Harmonies on the Hudson Concert Series: The Gold Hope Duo, Aug 18

Clermont State Historic Site presents Harmonies on the Hudson Concert Series featuring The Gold Hope Duo on Thursday, August 18th.

When Ameripolitan Award winning artist Lara Hope teams up with internationally touring, upright bass-slapping pro Matt “The Knife” Goldpaugh, they become…THE GOLD HOPE DUO! This husband-wife team are hitting it hard, spreading “Merry-Cana”, a term they coined to describe their genre. They will be bringing their unique brand of stripped-down, upbeat Rockabilly, Rhythm & Blues, Country, Folk and a pinch a humor to a town near you! Living by the motto “If you can’t do it, kazoo it!”, this pair is sure to make you laugh, dance, and sing along!

*You can also find the GHD playing worldwide with their full band, Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones, supporting acts such as The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Reverend Horton Heat, and The Blasters.
