Southern New England Bluegrass alert -- LOTS going on this weekend...

If you're in southern New England, you've got three opportunities to see and hear some wonderful Bluegrass music, so try to get to one or two of these shows, won't you?

On Saturday, November 16th, the relatively new organization known as the Rhode Island Bluegrass Alliance (or, RIBA) are presenting a show featuring the legendary EDDIE & MARTHA ADCOCK with TOM GRAY.  This concert takes place at the Francis Farm in Rehoboth, MA, and begins at 7PM.  Find more information on show by clicking here.  

There are two wonderful shows on Sunday, November 17th, but unfortunately, you likely won't be able to get to both of 'em...unless you own a private jet.  Still, it would be great if you can make it to at least one...

If you want to have one more opportunity to see and hear New Hampshire's
WHITE MOUNTAIN BLUEGRASS perform before they retire, get to the Country Corner Coffee House in South Hadley, MA on Sunday afternoon at 2PM.  Hazel and Mac McGee are bona fide Bluegrass Pioneers (as recognized at the International Bluegrass Music Museum), and after 43 years of performing as a band, they're retiring.  Get to South Hadley, if you're able, and wish them well, won't you?  For more info on the show, visit or call (413)467-9394.

If making the trip to Massachusetts doesn't work so well for you, there's wonderful Bluegrass gospel to be heard in southeastern Connecticut, as THE GOSPEL FRIENDS will perform a free show at the Central Baptist Church, 2 Union Square, Norwich CT.  Showtime is 3PM.  To take a look at a flyer for the show, click here.

No need to lecture -- get out and support live Bluegrass music when you can!
