Whiffletree, a classically trained duo with traditional and folk leanings, will perform Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the downtown Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St.

Tyler and Seth Yentes appear to be an unassuming couple of handsome guys — head out to North Branch Farm in Monroe and you may find the gentlemen restoring a barn or walking behind the whiffletree of a horse-drawn plow. Whiffletree takes on a new meaning, however, when these two talented renaissance men take up their violin and cello. They use their agrarian and rural roots to create original acoustic music ranging from rich and spicy to tender and sweet.

Whiffletree’s music is upbeat, confident and appealing, guaranteed to warm the wavering shackles of this winter’s tentative grip. A $10 suggested donation at the door includes cider, tea and snacks. CDs will be available for purchase. For more information, call 338-0001 or visit aarhusgallery.com.
