Friday, July 25, at 7:30 p.m., Dawson Creek will be back with the best in bluegrass music. You will not want to miss this. They play those bluegrass standards we all cut teeth on around here and they throw in a few new tunes as well. They put on an awesome show and keep us rolling laughing too. You couldn’t beat an evening with us! Dust off those dancing shoes and come on out!
Friday, Aug. 1: Will Caudill and RT 7
Friday, Aug. 8: The Country Troubadours
Friday, Aug. 15: Cross Country Bluegrass
Aspiring singers and musicians who want to share their talents are invited to play during intermission on Friday nights. The target audience is bluegrass/ country/folk. Limit two songs per individual/ group until all who wish to pick have had a turn. Rotation as time allows. You will always find a kind and receptive crowd. We have some veteran musicians playing in featured bands who played their first public appearance as a novice on our stage. This is an opportunity to break the ice and get your feet wet so to speak. Everyone welcome!
Family fun for all ages. Kids get in free when accompanied by an adult. Good food, good music, good fellowship.
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
