They play one set bluegrass and one set country music. They play an awesome mix of great old standard tunes in each genre. You won’t find any better pickers than these local guys. Live music is so much more up close and personal. We have talent right here in Letcher County to rival any place on the map. The music culture of these mountains is outstanding. Support your local musicians!
Friday June 27: Dawson Creek
Friday July 4: Cancelled for Independence Day
Friday July 11: 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 2 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.
