At first glance, you might not think that my husband and I would be avid bluegrass fans. We are young and tattooed and don’t fit the stereotypical country look. Nevertheless, we are huge music fans and bluegrass songs are always a favorite.
Just last weekend, we saw Old Crow Medicine Show perform at the Wilmington Opera House. As I looked around the tightly-packed theater, I was reminded of why I love bluegrass music so much. It warms my heart to see all different kinds of people, from ages 7 to 77, clapping and stomping to this uniquely American music.
If you haven’t discovered bluegrass yet or if you’re already a big fan, don’t miss the opportunity to see it performed LIVE this Saturday at the Elkton Central Library on August 10 at 7pm. Dean Sapp and the Harford Express will be playing and talking about the history of bluegrass along with local bluegrass band, Blades of Grass. This will be a fun, free event for all ages. Space is filling fast, so be sure to call and reserve your seat.
For those that already love bluegrass, what’s your favorite band or artist?
