On December 11th, the Michigan trio The Moxie Strings will bring their unique style of music to The Livery in Benton Harbor. The band's music is broadly Celtic rock, but it's also experimental, combining together classical, bluegrass and and Americana to create a unique sound, equal parts gentle and spirited. But if you had met the band's violinist, Diana Ladio, and its cellist, Alison Lynn, a decade ago, you would have never guessed they'd end up making this kind of music.

About a year ago, the regional band called String Cheese changed their name to avoid confusion with another ensemble called The String Cheese Incident. The name they switched to is The Moxie Strings. The Moxie Strings play at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 24 at the Riviera Theatre in Three Rivers.
