Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys
August 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10.00
To loyal Opera House concertgoers and anyone who knows bluegrass music in West Virginia, the Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys need no introduction. The Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys are among West Virginia’s longest-running bluegrass bands. The group first organized in 1968 around the foursome of Richard Hefner (banjo/tenor vocal), his brother Bill Hefner (guitar/mandolin/baritone vocal), their late uncle Glenn “Dude” Irvine (mandolin) and the late Harley Carpenter (guitar/lead vocal). Today, Richard Hefner remains as one of the band’s founding members. He’s joined by Chris Nickell on guitar, Mike Smith on Bass, and Dalton Smith on mandolin.
