This concert just fell into our laps and we couldn't resist. If you haven't heard of this band....you will!! 

We just heard about their being near our area and we grabbed them up for you. BUT...only 50 of you. The concert is in a beautiful home with great acoustics. Don't wait. Buy your ticket(s) now and reserve your spot for this special, special concert.

Winners of the Band Contest at the 2013 Thomas Point Bluegrass Festival, The Lonely Heartstring Band is an acoustic quintet based out of Boston, MA. Their music is a combination of old and new styles, melding the sounds of traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and arranging. The band began with a common love for the music of The Beatles, bringing some of their favorite songs to life while attempting to remain true to the original arrangements.

Silver Bay Bluegrass Camp

A wonderful bluegrass camp is coming to Lake George this summer, from July 7-16, 2014! Headed by bluegrass jamming maven Pete Wernick, Silver Bay Bluegrass Camp features eight certified Wernick Method instructors for all bluegrass instruments. You can choose full-day or morning-only sessions with a spectrum of options.

Students will learn in small and large groups, always hands-on: jam skills instruction for novices, performance labs and band coaching for higher skill players. There will be instrument classes, sessions on songwriting, harmony singing, and many other options.

If you have been following the CD reviews posted on the website, you may have scratched your head at those written by Glen Herbert, wondering, do I know him? Is he that quiet guy who shows up occasionally at jams? Am I getting worse at recognizing names?

Poll: Essential Bluegrass Recordings

Two years ago, the HVBA presented a six-week course to senior citizens called the Evolution of Bluegrass. This was done under the auspices of Marist College's, CLS (Center for Lifetime Studies) program. We began the class with 60 "students" and expected the usual attrition rate to bring us down to 40. That is what we were told was the pattern of these classes. 
 
Instead, our group grew each week until we had 80 in the class. The directors of the program (and we) were astounded at the positive response and they have asked us to repeat the classes. And so we will. The series will begin this April (2014) and we want YOUR input.
