Concerts open with Bluegrass
The Hayes Presidential Center's 2015 Verandah Concert series opens Wednesday, June 10, 2015, with a performance by Bridge County Bluegrass Band. In addition to ice cream and music, FREE blood pressure checks are offered beginning at 5:30 pm. The health checks are part of special programming being done in conjunction with the Dressed for Life exhibit.
Admission to the Verandah Concert is FREE and open to all thanks to title sponsorship from Fremont Federal Credit Union. Attendees are reminded to bring their own seat for this outdoor event. The concert is preceded by an old-fashioned ice cream social with serving starting at 6:45 p.m. Music follows from 7-8 p.m. Additional funding for the concert series is provided by Mosser Construction Inc .
Five musicians from four counties (Fulton, Henry, Lucas, and Wood) in Northwest Ohio comprise the Bridge County Bluegrass Band. Collectively, the musicians bring more than a half century of music experience to the stage. Each has played in various other bands and performed different styles of music. However, their shared love of Bluegrass brought them together.
For those who love the driving beat of traditional bluegrass, with mournful songs and unforgettable instrumentals, get ready for a real treat.
