WVU Blue Grass and Old-time band -an afternoon of music

February 16, 2020 at 2pm

$10 per person

Are you looking for something special to do with your Sweetheart over the Valentine’s Day Weekend? Well look no further, than Sunday Feb. 16 at the Gallery 62 West! We have an afternoon of special music on the slate for you.

Starting at 2PM, we are welcoming the WVU Bluegrass and Old-Time Bands! Founded in 2014, the WVU Bluegrass and Old-Time Bands have performed in nearly half of West Virginia’s fifty-five counties, sharing their love of traditional Appalachian music with public school students and others.

Directed by Dr. Travis Stimeling, associate professor of musicology in the WVU School of Music, the WVU Bluegrass and Old-Time Bands explore the rich traditions of music-making in our region while also forging new pathways within the tradition.

This performance will be part of an ambitious spring semester, which will take the students on tour in central West Virginia as well as the recording studio, where they will record their second album for the WVU student-run record label, Mon Hills Records.

I am sharing a link to the WVU Magazine web page, so you can get a sneak preview of the type of music to expect that afternoon!

Admission is $10 per person and includes Valentine’s day snacks! We are looking forward to this presentation of old time music and hope to see you there!
