The Howling Brothers are back. Six years after John Knapp departed the Triangle's most adventurous acoustic duo, composer and dulcimer player Rick Brockner has found a new brother in mandolinist Marty Koehler. As heard on their new CD, Away From the Pack, Brockner and Koehler explore progressive roots-based music of their own composition, ranging from driving and jamming to intricate and introspective. Joining the pair will be master fiddler Jan Johansson, formerly of New Vintage, with whom Brockner has long performed and recorded more traditional acoustic music. Showtime is 8 p.m. Friday in the up-close-and-personal setting of Chapel Hill's Skylight Exchange. For details call 933-5550. --Art Menius
