BEARTRACKS at Country Corner Coffee House -- Saturday, October 20th

The Country Corner Coffee House kicks off its 2007-2008 season with a great show on Saturday, October 20th featuring Beartracks (with Junior Barber). Hailing from upstate New York, this trio features the soulful resonator guitar work of Junior Barber (so notable on those early Gibson Brothers records), as well great sibling harmonies from two of Junior's cousins, Tom Venne & Julie Venne Hogan. These folks do not perform Bill Monroe-style, 100% Bluegrass, but they have a fine sound, and have been crowd favorites at the Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival in Weston, VT for the past several years. Showtime is 8PM.

For those not familiar with the Country Corner Coffee House, it is actually one of the longest-running old time country & Bluegrass coffee houses in the region. It's held in the South Hadley Falls Congregational Church Fellowship Hall, 5 North Main Street, South Hadley, MA, and is very easy to find. For directions, click here. Dave Helman has been the force behind these great shows -- held every third Saturday from October through April -- and Dave's wife, Rose, is right out front and center getting things done, too. Sound, of course, is by Dave's Country Corner Productions. If you've not yet made the trip to South Hadley, what better time to start than now?
