friends, including two brothers, offer a program of true
bluegrass music, including Breakdowns and Gospel, Fiddle
tunes and a Waltz, with bass, guitar, mandolin and banjo.
A New England favorite,
Blackstone Valley Bluegrass Band has garnered a reputation
for high-energy shows laced with powerful three and four
part harmonies and fast but tasteful picking, coupled with
winning on-stage camaraderie.
The church is
located at the corner of Church Road and Route 140, just
north of the intersection of Main Street and Route 140, on
the town common. The church is approximately 2 miles south
of the intersection of Route 140 and I-290.
Dave Dick on
Bob Dick on
Nowlan on mandolin and
Ken Taylor on upright
bass, this original
lineup has been together for 15 years - rare
for bluegrass bands these days.
Over the years this seasoned group has built
up a solid and ever expanding repertoire to
go along with an engaging stage performance;
these guys can really mix things up
musically and entertain an audience! They're
all multi-instrumentalists and play a wide
range of bluegrass styles... but what
really sets them apart are their
powerful three and four part harmonies.
Come check out
Blackstone Valley Bluegrass to hear some
great bluegrass music, smooth harmonies,
fast but tasteful pickin', and most
importantly, to have a great time!
