08 Oct Birch Creek Bluegrass Band
Back by popular demand… On Saturday, October 18 the Birch Creek Bluegrass Band will be performing FREE at the library. You don’t want to miss this!
The Birch Creek Bluegrass Band is one of Indiana’s most well-known and beloved traditional bluegrass bands. What’s unique about this group of five recognized and talented musicians is that they have played together casually for more than 25 years, all while maintaining other professions and performing in other groups. Each member is experienced on more than one instrument and has performed in a variety of capacities. From touring with well-known bands to both participating in and judging competitions; from teaching lessons and participating in casual jam sessions to arranging and creating new music over the past few decades, the members of Birch Creek are not only recognized musicians but also knowledgeable in bluegrass culture and history. Their passion for good old bluegrass music and their desire to keep learning new instruments and techniques unites them as a Hoosier music staple.
Birch Creek has performed at the library in years past and we get frequent requests to have them back. Bluegrass fanatics and newbies alike will get a good taste of this traditional, relaxing, feel-good style of homegrown music. Settle in and listen to Don Anderson on fiddle and mandolin, Daryl Jones on guitar, Danny Greene on bass, Roger Banister on banjo, and Mike Curtis on the dobro.
