How lucky can we get? Well, it turns out that we've just hit the jackpot with The James King Band coming to Poughkeepsie on Monday, June 24. This band is one of our favorites and James King is one of the best traditional bluegrass singers on the scene today.
Seating is limited to only 70 people. If you want to be sure to hear this band in an intimate setting, reserve your tickets right now. This concert almost upon us and I, for one, can hardly wait!!!
James is a nine-time winner of the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music's Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year award. To those folks, King's emotive renderings of songs such as She Took His Breath Away, Bed by the Windowand 30 Years of Farming exemplify the essence of what bluegrass music is all about.

If you are planning on going to this concert to hear Merle Haggard, the "legend," join our group of HVBA and we will all enjoy the music together. We originally had a group of tickets, but only a handful of people have bought them at this point. We now have released those seats to others. If you want to buy yours, be sure to call the Box Office of UPAC in Kingston.

Dobro workshop by Rob Ickes
Guitar workshop by Jim Hurst
Sunday, July 7, 2013, 2-4pm
21 Adriance Avenue, Poughkeepsie (Change of Venue)
Rob's Dobro workshop is open to all levels of Dobro players. He typically customizes his group workshops to address whatever topics the students would like to cover. He will also discuss right and left hand techniques, scales, rhythm, backing up a vocalist and creating solos, playing the blues and much much more! Jim and Rob will also get their two classes together at the end of the session for a "mini-concert" and take Q and A and demonstrate the techniques they have just been teaching.
