2018 Riverfront Concert Series: High and Wides


Date: 6:30pm EDT July 26

Music inspired by days when lines blurred between bluegrass, old-time, country, boogie, blues, rockabilly, and western swing.

The High and Wides play music inspired by days when lines blurred between bluegrass, old-time, country, boogie, blues, rockabilly, and western swing. The band, consisting of Marc Dykeman (Guitar/Vocals), Sam Guthridge (Banjo/Mandolin/Vocals), Nate Grower (Fiddle), and Mike Buccino (Upright Bass), features three veterans of long-time Maryland bluegrass fixture Chester River Runoff.

Starr Center program manager and Riverfront Concert Series host Michael Buckley will provide brief commentary and some cultural context at each performance. A 20-year veteran of the music world, Buckley’s eclectic weekly radio program, Sunday mornings from 7-10 am on Annapolis-based WRNR, 103.1 FM (streaming live at wrnr.com), includes the popular interview series “Voices of the Chesapeake Bay.”

All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. on the Custom House lawn, 101 South Water Street, Chestertown.  The concerts are free—and so are the lemonade and cookies. Bring your own picnic, blankets and chairs and enjoy a magical musical evening with friends, family, and neighbors on the shores of the Chester River. For more information, visit starrcenter.washcoll.edu or contact Michael Buckley, 410-810-7156.

Additional support for the 2016 Riverfront Concert Series provided by Yerkes Construction, the Washington College Student Events Board (SEB), and the Kent County Arts Council.
