Live Bluegrass music in CT -- this weekend!

If you're in search of some live BG in Connecticut this weekend, here are a couple of options for you:

Nick Anderson kicks off his series of shows at the Killingly Grange Hall this very evening (Saturday, 10/25) with two bands: Pine Creek & Nick's own band, Shady Creek. Music starts at 7PM. The Killingly Grange is located on the corner of Route 101 & Dog Hill Road in East Killingly, and is easily accessible from Interstate 395. For more information, call (860)564-1018.

On Sunday, there are a couple of possibilities....

From noon-4PM, GrassRoutes will be performing at Roses Berry Farm, 295 Matson Hill Road, South Glastonbury. Admission is FREE. For more information, call (860)633-7467.

On Sunday evening, TrueGrass takes the stage at the Firebox Restaurant, 539 Broad Street, Hartford. Music happens from 5-8PM with no cover charge. This is third week in a row that the Firebox has offered BG on Sunday evenings -- Nick Novia is working with the restaurant to keep the music going for the next several Sunday evenings. A call from "BG Cafe" listener Dick Bowden last Sunday revealed that the music was great at the Firebox, and the restaurant itself was easy to find. Check it out, if you're so inclined. For more information, call (860)246-1222.

As always, we encourage you to get out and support the local BG shows whenever they happen.
