Free Bluegrass Concert Slated for Concord
Athens, W.Va. - The doors will be open to all comers Saturday, November 4, 2000 when the Appalachian Highlands Music Association will present an evening of live old-time and bluegrass music in the Alexander Fine Arts Center at 6:00 p.m. The West Virginia Bluegrass Connection and the Midnight Rambler String Band are scheduled to perform and admission is free to the public.
“With Concord College providing the Alexander Center stage and the bands’ performance fees, the gates to this concert are open to any and all who would enjoy a night of traditional Appalachian music,” stated Randolph Evans, treasurer for the AHMA. “Due to the generous assistance of Dr. Jerry Beasley, the AHMA has been able to schedule its November concert at Concord without charging its usual non-member admission fee of $5.00. The Association will operate its concession in the Alexander Center lobby, so concert-goers will be able to purchase the famous AHMA hotdogs with chili or slaw as well as home-baked treats and beverages.”
The doors of the Alexander Center will open at 5:30 p.m. for those who want to come early for good seats, and the show will start at 6:00 p.m. With an intermission between the bands’ sets, the audience will have an opportunity to patronize the concession, but food or drinks should not be brought into the performance hall. The concert will wrap up about 10:00 p.m. that evening.
