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.

 

Venue Change for Concert Tonight!

Our 6:30 p.m. Thursday concert this evening has been moved to Hynson Pavilion at Wilmer Park. Due to boathouse construction parking is at Wilmer Park. Hope to see you there!

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.
