Bluegrass at Buttery Brook -- Saturday, July 19th

This coming Saturday, Dave and Rose Helman of Country Corner Productions will be holding their annual event known as Bluegrass at Buttery Brook Park in South Hadley, MA. Sometimes, the weather is extremely wet (2006), and sometimes, it's just absolutely gorgeous (2007). Let's hope that the 2008 conditions are similar to those found in 2007....

Either way, though, the music will be top-notch at Buttery Brook this Saturday. Here's the rundown of the bands:

White Mountain Bluegrass
Travers Chandler & Avery County
The Bristol Boys
Joshua Williams & North Country Bluegrass

Please note that the last named band features a mighty fine 12-year-old singer from Massachusetts (as opposed to the also-young fine singer Josh Williams who formerly worked with Rhonda Vincent).

Buttery Brook Park is located on Route 33 in South Hadley, MA, and is easily accessible from the Mass Pike, as well as I-91. The music runs from 10AM-8PM, and the sound is by Country Corner Productions. As always, there will be food vendors, and a playground for the kids. For more information, call (413)467-9394, send email to, or visit

Yes, it's true that the outstanding Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival also happens this very weekend, but if you're not heading to Oak Hill, why not make the trip to South Hadley?

Hope to see you up there....
