PRINCETON — Sons of the Never Wrong, the popular folk trio from Chicago, will return to the Princeton Coffeehouse for a performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28. The Sons last appeared at the coffeehouse in 2012.
Sons of the Never Wrong are celebrating the 25th year of their founding, while the coffeehouse celebrates its 25th season. The Princeton show will also help celebrate the release of the band’s newest CD, “Song of Sons.”
Described as a “dynamic, original harmony vocal trio,” by WGBH Boston, the group has a decidedly eclectic style that combines influences of folk, jazz, pop and rock. All three Sons play, sing and write for the band. Bruce Roper is the primary songwriter and plays acoustic guitar. Sue Demel is known for her inspired harmonies and exuberant moving about on stage as she beats on her djembe drums or quietly strums the dulcimer or guitar. Multi-instrumentalist Deborah Lader brings to the band her own style of writing, voice and humor along with her flair for banjo, mandolin, guitar, and rich alto harmonies.
Sons of the Never Wrong concerts tend to be joyful affairs. “Although they write some serious songs and give some serious performances, they never take themselves too seriously,” according to Sing Out magazine. “They take chances, inventing their own genre as they go.” The trio has “revolutionized the world of folk” (UniverCity Magazine).
The Princeton Coffeehouse is located at the Open Prairie UCC Church, 25 E. Marion St. in downtown Princeton. Admission is $15 at the door. The venue is completely accessible and there is ample free parking nearby. Doors open at 7 p.m. Fair trade coffee, tea and homemade desserts are available.
Larry and Deb Lawson and Bob and Peggy Etheridge are the sponsors of the Sons of the Never Wrong show.
