The South Mountain Heritage Society is pleased to host An Evening of Bluegrass and Old Time Traditional Music with the Main Line Gravy Soppers and The Midnite Bluegrass Boys on Saturday March 3 at the Old German Reformed Church in Burkittsville (3 East Main Street). The doors will open at 7 p.m. with music starting at 7:30. A $5 donation to benefit the South Mountain Heritage Society is encouraged.
The Main Line Gravy Soppers are an old time trio featuring Rebecca Adams on clawhammer banjo and vocals, Jeffrey Adams on guitar, and Jason Miller on fiddle, vocals, and banjo. The Gravy Soppers delight in entertaining fans from 3 to 91 with foot stompin’ dance music and good old barnyard humor. Their songs range from raucous vaudeville numbers to haunting old fiddle tunes, always telling a story.
The Midnite Bluegrass Boys are Brad Young on guitar and vocals, Sean Hill on banjo and vocals, Scott Walker on fiddle, Jeffrey McWilliams on bass, and Charlie Cottingham on mandolin and vocals. The Boys pay homage to the roots of traditional bluegrass music with a selection of songs from the Stanley Brothers, Flatt and Scruggs, and Bill Monroe but also delve into contemporary and “newgrass” material.
The Old German Reformed Church in Burkittsville has been lovingly restored by the South Mountain Heritage Society. It provides a wonderful setting for an evening of uniquely American music. A combination of melody and hard driving rhythms will make for a big time for all listening. Like Briscoe Darling said on the Andy Griffith show:“Jes’ jump in where you can, Sheriff, and try ta’ hang on!”
