Americana Music Series: Bluegrass, Brew & BBQ
Furnace Town Living Heritage Village, Snow Hill Maryland

For the 2017 season, Furnace Town Living Heritage Village presents a four part family friendly Americana Music Series featuring live musical performances of bluegrass, blues, Celtic, and country music, as well as a showcase of local craft breweries, and delicious BBQ served by local restaurants.

Americana, or old-time music, and bluegrass have deep roots in the mid-Atlantic. The Irish, Scots and British who migrated to America, and enslaved Africans brought with them the basic styles of music that are generally considered to be the roots of bluegrass music as it’s known today.

“The Americana Music Series is a great addition to Furnace Town”, says executive director Patrick Rofe. “Live bluegrass performances are one of the most requested additions to our calendar. It was an easy decision to make. Bluegrass, Brew & BBQ allows us to celebrate the rich musical traditions of our shared cultural past. We plan to expand on musical traditions next year by having them included in the Furnace Town Folk School with classes in songwriting, lutherie, singing, dance, and more. Sitting among historic nineteenth-century buildings while listening to traditional melodies it’s easy to feel like you’ve stepped back in time.”

There are four concerts in the series, June 4, July 2, August 6, and August 27 — all Sundays. Doors open at 4pm and the performance is from 5pm to 7pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children under 16 and can be purchased at www.eventbrite.com or by calling Furnace Town at (410) 632-2032.

In August you can join Keagan Justice, Mickey Justice, Dave Kohut, and Mike O’Laughlin – The Fellow Travelers on a journey as they explore the musical bridge between the British Isles and Appalachia for the third concert in the series. The final performance of the Americana Music Series will feature musicians Dan Caton, Keagan Justice, Mickey Justice, Jon Simmons, and Todd Smith. Third Wave Brewery and Fin City Brewing Co. have signed on as our local craft brewers for the performances in August.

For more information visit the Furnace Town website at www.furnacetown.org or the Furnace Town Facebook page @furnacetownvillage. Purchase tickets at www.eventbrite.com or at Furnace Town at (410) 632-2032.

Support provided by Mickey Justice, Billy Earl, PAC-14 and Shore Craft Beer. Sponsorships are still available and benefits include sponsor logos on posters, signs, websites, and more. For more information about the American Music Series, please call 410-632-2032.

The High & Wides - Riverside Park
Riverside Park, Baltimore MD

The High & Wides draw from their members’ extensive backgrounds in bluegrass and take the music to a place all their own by diving back into the time when old-time, rockabilly, western swing, and proto-rock’n’roll coexisted in a murky soup of hillbilly string band music.

This concert is a free, family-friendly event. Outdoors. Bring your own chair.

Americana Music Series: Bluegrass, Brew & BBQ
Furnace Town Living Heritage Village, Snow Hill Maryland

For the 2017 season, Furnace Town Living Heritage Village presents a four part family friendly Americana Music Series featuring live musical performances of bluegrass, blues, Celtic, and country music, as well as a showcase of local craft breweries, and delicious BBQ served by local restaurants.

Americana, or old-time music, and bluegrass have deep roots in the mid-Atlantic. The Irish, Scots and British who migrated to America, and enslaved Africans brought with them the basic styles of music that are generally considered to be the roots of bluegrass music as it’s known today.

“The Americana Music Series is a great addition to Furnace Town”, says executive director Patrick Rofe. “Live bluegrass performances are one of the most requested additions to our calendar. It was an easy decision to make. Bluegrass, Brew & BBQ allows us to celebrate the rich musical traditions of our shared cultural past. We plan to expand on musical traditions next year by having them included in the Furnace Town Folk School with classes in songwriting, lutherie, singing, dance, and more. Sitting among historic nineteenth-century buildings while listening to traditional melodies it’s easy to feel like you’ve stepped back in time.”

There are four concerts in the series, June 4, July 2, August 6, and August 27 — all Sundays. Doors open at 4pm and the performance is from 5pm to 7pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children under 16 and can be purchased at www.eventbrite.com or by calling Furnace Town at (410) 632-2032.

The final performance of the Americana Music Series will feature musicians Dan Caton, Keagan Justice, Mickey Justice, Jon Simmons, and Todd Smith. Third Wave Brewery and Fin City Brewing Co. have signed on as our local craft brewers for the performances in August.

For more information visit the Furnace Town website at www.furnacetown.org or the Furnace Town Facebook page @furnacetownvillage. Purchase tickets at www.eventbrite.com or at Furnace Town at (410) 632-2032.

Support provided by Mickey Justice, Billy Earl, PAC-14 and Shore Craft Beer. Sponsorships are still available and benefits include sponsor logos on posters, signs, websites, and more. For more information about the American Music Series, please call 410-632-2032.
