Opry Night will feature a trio of Pocahontas County bands specializing in old-time and traditional bluegrass music: The Elk River Ramblers, the Hefner Family and the Viney Mountain Boys.
These bands will be playing to honor the memory of Alan Dutchess, a member of the Elk River Ramblers and former member of the Viney Mountain Boys, who passed away unexpectedly last week. Proceeds from the concert will be used to establish a music scholarship in Dutchess’ name.
Opry Night takes place Saturday, February 23, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8. Youth 17 and younger are admitted free of charge.
Tickets can be ordered online.
The bands will be joined by a number of Pocahontas County musicians whose lives have been touched over the years by Dutchess and his music. (more…)
