Merle Haggard at Bardavon


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.

Open jam begins at 6:30, so bring your instrument!

There will be a refreshment breat, so bring your appetite!

The Charleston, South Carolina based old-time trio says “We just sound like we sound like.” ‘And what they sound like’, says Virginia State Folklorist, Jon Lohman, ‘is an arresting trio of fine musicians, playing the music they love the only way they know how, resulting in a sound that melds a seasoned artistry with playful exuberance. David, Ivy and Sarah’s voices together create a sound that is at once hauntingly ancient yet refreshingly new. There is a sense of immediacy to the Broadcaster’s sound, which can bring old chestnuts to new life, while providing new originals with the patina and soul of the well-worn hills that inspire them."
