Too Blue: HVBA November Concert


Traveling freely between bluegrass, swing, country, Celtic and jazz, a Too Blue show is a dynamic dose of serious fun. Smooth harmonies and adventurous musicianship bring stellar arrangements to life and leave the listener anything but “blue”. Seamlessly blending their vocals are guitarist Betsy Rome and banjoist Joan Harrison. Mandolin powerhouse Michael Sassano astounds and entertains, while jazz bassist Jamie Doris brings a creative perspective.

Recent shows include the Main Stage at the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, the CIA's "Chefs for Clearwater" event, the CT Folk concert series, and Daryl's House Club.

On November 9th they are joined by David Chernack on fiddle, from Hyde Park. Together, Too Blue makes exciting bluegrass that swings and entertains.

The HVBA hosts two monthly jam sessions!

The Manor at Woodside
168 Academy Street
Poughkeepsie, NY

Held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month.


All of our jam sessions feature the Slow Jam, which happens during the first 60 minutes. From 6:30 to 7:30, we invite you to play at a sane pace in a supportive, non-competitive environment. The regular jam begins at 7:30 and all level players are welcome for the entire evening.

For info, call Lynn at 914.456.1981
