The second concert of the SHOWCASE 2017 Sumer Series is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 22 at Community Arts Place in Barnesville. The program will be presented by Almost Famous of Barnesville, who will perform an evening of bluegrass music.
Members of the band are Micah Fuchs, mandolin; Josh Hetrick, guitar; Harold Dailey, bass; Steven Moore, banjo and sometimes guitar. All four musicians do vocals. Fuchs is minister of the Church of Christ in Belmont and the principal of Barnesville High School. Hetrick is a roofer as well as a minister at the Freeport Church of Christ. Dailey, who started the bluegrass programs at Pennyroyal Opera House in Fairview, has about 50 years of music under his belt. He is a retired director of facilities. Moore has collected several national bluegrass championships for banjo playing.
Those coming to the musical programs should bring lawn chairs. In case of rain, events will be moved to the Little Rocks Learning Center (former Grange Hall) on Shamrock Drive. A food stand will be open during the evening. There will be poetry in the printed programs. Donations are appreciated.
It was a lovely summer evening when last week's first Showcase program was held outdoors. The audience enjoyed the bluegrass music of Joe Williams and Deep Water. Poetry was by Kimberli Ann Vetula Adamson in the printed program booklets.
