The 2017 WEEKEND BLUEGRASS CONCERT SERIES is dedicated to the memory of Judy Odam who died on November 21, 2016.  For the past 14 years she was the lady who took your admission money and also was the boss of our snack bar. She worked our concert series since its inception and her loss will be felt for a very long time.  She was truly a very special person and friend.

Fall is upon us, even though the temperature outside at the moment is in the 80s this October Day.  We have two concerts left in our 2017 season of the Weekend Bluegrass Concert Series – BLUE MOON COWGIRLS on Saturday, October 21st and THE CHUCK WAGON GANG on Sunday, December 10th.  We are working on a reduced schedule for 2018, which will be our 16th year for this series, and as soon as events are confirmed you’ll find them listed here.  I need to devote more of my time to other projects that are also very important to me that have either fallen by the wayside over the past 15 years, or that I just didn’t have the time to start.  Time moves on folks and that means there is less and less time for things as each day passes.  Off my aged soapbox now – lol.

COMING ATTRACTION – OCTOBER 2017:  If you like country music from the 40s thru the 60s where the music was straight from the heart with great vocals and instrumentation then BLUE MOON COWGIRLS is just the band you are looking for.  They play retro-country – without ramped up amps, torn jeans, out-sized cowboy hats (and egos too – lol).  There music is great to listen to and they bring you back to the days when country music was in its prime.  They have a lot of fun too so the evening will be filled with good music and good humor (no pun intended ;-).

COMING ATTRACTION – DECEMBER 2017:   THE CHUCK WAGON GANG have been performing the best in gospel music for over 80 years with four-part vocal harmony and guitar accompaniment.  They say the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.  In the case of this band that old adage holds true as the current alto is the granddaughter of the original alto.  This will be their third visit with us and it will be truly stunning as were their previous two visits.  Check out there web page and learn more about them and their music – you’ll be glad you did.

Keep checking this page to find out the latest on what’s happening in all our series events.  If you have any questions about this concert series I’ve provided a “Contact Form” (at the bottom of the page) for just such purposes. As Garrison Keilor would say, “We’ll keep a light on in the window for you.”

Thanks a bunch – Bob (Concert Coordinator)
