Friday Nite Pickin’ schedule
May 23, at 7: 30 p. m., Dawson Creek will be our featured band. Dawson Creek is hard core bluegrass with those sweet, high lonesome harmonies and harddriving tunes we can kick our heels up to. The bluegrass standards they play will make you sing along in spite of yourself. You won’t be sorry you came out to hear them. You will join the laughter of new friends as these guys joke and cut up between songs. Don’t sit home alone. Come on out and be with us!
May 30: Sunrise Ridge
June 6: Will Caudill and Rt. 7
June 13: The Country Troubadours
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 is more than welcome to share their talents!
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.
