Friday Nite Pickin’ schedule: May 9, 2014 at7:30 p.m., The Country Troubadours will return for the finest in classic country music complete with the steel guitar/ piano skills of Letcher County’s own Buddy Young. This band has a smooth style and is perfect for twostepping. You won’t regret your decision to spend the evening with us. We always have a great time. Support your local musicians.
May 16: Cross Country Bluegrass; May 23: Dawson Creek; May 30: Sunrise Ridge.
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.” Proverbs 17:21-23
