The Summer Concert Series continues today, Sunday July 19 at Heritage Park, 4:00 to 6:00pm, with the music of ‘Bluegrass Brethren’. The group presents a unique blend of gospel, hymns and traditional instrumentals to their listeners. Bluegrass Brethren’s simple instrumental approach combined with heartfelt vocals and a fun loving stage presence make for an entertaining event. Best known for their own special brand of original gospel tunes rendered in a bluegrass music style, the group has delighted audiences of all ages since 1977. In 1980, their original composition “The Closet” became an instant hit among Bluegrass Brethren fans. It is, today, considered a classic. Their most recent album releases include “Complete” and the Hymns volume II: “Near the Cross”. Their music has received national and international radio airplay.
