Adam Steffey plays mandolin and sings baritone; Ron Stewart, plays banjo and fiddle and sings; Keith Garrett, handles guitar and lead vocal duties; Gary Hultman is on dobro and Harold Nixon on bass.
Tickets are $15 at the door, show time is 7 p.m and doors open at 6 p.m. Hot dogs, barbeque sandwiches, other snacks and drinks will be available at the kitchen.
The Lucketts Bluegrass Series is one of the longest running, continuously-scheduled bluegrass series in the United States, and is sponsored by the nonprofit Lucketts Bluegrass Foundation and the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services. The concert series is run by volunteers so that most of the ticket revenues can be paid directly to the bands to promote and preserve this original American art-form. Proceeds support the continuation of the concert series and are invested back into the historic building and other community center programs.
