On Sunday, November 5th, there will be a great show in Plainfield, CT -- especially if you like your Bluegrass music to be hard-driving and traditional. Dan Paisley & the Southern Grass will be appearing at the Plainfield Town Hall Community Room, 8 Community Ave., Plainfield for 2 big sets of great BG.
Also on the bill is a band with which I'm quite familiar -- the Bear Bridge Band. This group (with members from western MA, southeastern NH, and northwestern CT) doesn't perform nearly as much as it did in, say, the late 1990s, but they still do make at least one or two appearances every year -- and always receive a very nice response. (Disclaimer: I'm not just saying nice things about these folks 'cause the one they call "Tex" is my brother -- really.)
The doors will open at 12:30PM for some pre-show jamming, and the music will start on the stage at 1:30PM. Food will be available, and there will some some CD giveaways, too. The show's sponsor is the Rhode Island Bluegrass Music Association (RIBGMA), which already has a number of members from Connecticut...and those numbers seem to be growing.
If you'd like information about the show, call (860)617-0394, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the RIBGMA website: www.RIBGMA.com. For directions to Plainfield Town Hall, click here, and if you'd like to see the flyer for this show, click here.
We hope to get Danny on the air at WHUS in the next couple of weeks. We'll let you know all about it -- both here and on the air.
I'll be back in the BG Cafe with you this Sunday from 4-7PM. Please join me....
