Country Corner kicks off 2008-2009 season....
This Saturday, October 18th, Dave Helman will kick off his 18th season of shows at the Country Corner Coffee House (also known as the South Hadley Falls Congregational Church Fellowship Hall), 11 North Main Street, South Hadley, MA. The featured band this month is one from the northwestern corner of Connecticut -- NorthernBound. The Paden Brothers (Harry, Steve, & Ray) along with Mike LaRocque have been playing in this configuration for more than 14 years, and they are favorites wherever they perform.
There is a new fifth member of NorthernBound who (unfortunately) won't be at Saturday's show: Cathy Day on fiddle. WHUS Bluegrass listeners may recall Cathy by her maiden name -- Cathy Bumgarner. While an undergrad at UCONN in the early 1990s, Cathy was on the air at WHUS as one of the broadcasters of Bluegrass.
While Dave & Rose Helman haven't completely set the lineup for all of the Country Corner shows this season, here's what they have lined up so far:
November 15th - David Davis & the Warrior River Boys
January 17th - Jay Armsworthy & Eastern Tradition
February 21st - Jen Larson & Straight Drive
March 21st - TBA
April 18th - Crossover
For all shows, the doors open at 7PM -- the show starts at 8PM. For more information, call (413)467-9394, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or click here.
