Friday 05/26/2017
7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

From Telluride Bluegrass Festival to SxSW and all points beyond – Head for the Hills
creates a sound based in bluegrass that reaches into indie rock, jazz, hip hop, world
and folk to stitch together fresh songs that bridge the divide between past and future
acoustic music.

Strung Like a Horse is a high energy gypsy punk grass band based in Chattanooga, TN. They are coming fresh off of their third official release, FREE, and touring nationally. Your first taste of Strung Like a Horse is like that first sip of moonshine—it will blow your hat off your head and it’s far more intoxicating than you expected. They draw inspiration from folk punk bands like The Violent Femmes, but their roots are buried deep in the good ol’ fashioned home-made hillbilly stomp grass. These junkyard dogs bring “honest, playful, headbangingly interactive fun” to any venue their rocket crashes.

Amongst the orange and red fallen from trees lining the Shenandoah River, the duo of Dear Creek was born. In 2009, singer/guitarist, Kate Potrykus, and guitarist, Alex Salser, could be found writing songs between classes and playing local gigs on the weekends. Soon, Dear Creek grew into a 5-piece, inspired by the sounds of the Appalachian Valley in which they were cradled, and the jazz, blues, folk, and rock music, which moved them to become musicians in the first place. Two albums, several tours including a recent 16 State tour, and a few line-ups later, Alex and Kate have stripped down to the very foundation upon which they had started. Now catch Dear Creek live as a duo as they tour the country releasing their newest album, “So it Goes.” Listeners will get tripped up in the roots of Dear Creek’s energetic, acoustic grooves, and leave their show soothed by the sultry sounds of their soaring melodies.

You must be 18 or over to enter unless accompanied by your parent. Valid ID required.

Americana Music Series: Bluegrass, Brew & BBQ featuring Spring Grass
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.”

At the first performance on June 4th, we carry on the legacy of traditional straight ahead bluegrass from Spring Grass with young artists Keagan Justice, Colton Kerchner, Frankie Nanna, along with Mickey Justice and Steve Quillen. It also features cold crisp beer from local craft brewery Dogfish Head.

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.

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.

Bluegrass & BBQ: Town Mountain
Barns of Rose Hill, Berryville VA

Join us for a night of Bluegrass & BBQ with Town Mountain!

Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain has earned raves for their hard-driving sound, their in-house songwriting and the honky-tonk edge that permeates their exhilarating live performances, whether in a packed club or at a sold-out festival. The hearty base of Town Mountain’s music is the bluegrass triumvirate of Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. It’s what else goes into the mix that brings it all to life both on stage and on record and reflects the group’s wide-ranging influences – from the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia and the ethereal lyrics of Robert Hunter, to the honest, vintage country of Willie, Waylon and Merle.

Doors open at 7:00 and concert starts at 8:00 PM
Award-winning BBQ from Jordan Springs Market will be available for sale from 7:00 to 8:30 PM

$20 advance / $25 door / 12 & Under Free

Americana Music Series: Bluegrass, Brew & BBQ featuring No Spare Time
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 second performance on July 2nd brings to the stage No Spare Time with its hard driving style of third generation bluegrass featuring musicians Gary Bates, Mickey Justice, Larry Lynch, Wes Parks, and Gary Weber. The featured local brewery will be Big Oyster.

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. 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.

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.

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.
