The next Music at St. Mary’s concert is Sunday, Nov. 1 at 3 p.m. when the series will welcome the Appalachian Christian Hillbilly Band.
Don’t let the name fool you. This isn’t your garden variety of a jug band with spoons and washboard. Granted, there will undoubtedly be some of those, but there will also be a banjo, guitar, mandolin, washtub bass, and a jug or two. The singing will be from toe-tapping to old gospel songs that will undoubtedly bring back a memory or two.
Music from these folks is top-notch and their humor will range from “groaners” to laugh-out-loud funnies, according a press release from series organizers.
Over it all, you’ll experience the sense that these folks love God and aren’t afraid to show it. They frequently perform at Emmaus events in Chillicothe, other venues in south-central Ohio and have traveled as far as the Colorado/Wyoming area. The group represents around 12 churches in the area and the “ring-leader” is Bill Fetters.
The Music at St. Mary’s Concert Series is provided to the Highland County community at no charge; however, donations are accepted the day of the concert. All concerts are held in the sanctuary of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 234 N. High St., Hillsboro.
