BluesGrass, a vocal duo, will be presented by the Friends of the Case Memorial Library on Saturday, August 3 at 2 p.m.
Mark White plays guitar and harmonica and is accompanied by Jon Swift on upright bass. They play bluegrass, blues and folk music. Both were influenced early on by Hank Williams, The Kingston Trio, New Orleans Jazz, Chet Atkins and later on by Little Richard, The Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan.
Bluegrass, blues and folk music are Americana roots music. Tunes played on stringed instruments are narratives about the everyday lives of people, lost loves, hard scrabble lives in Appalachia and other poor rural areas.
Immerse yourself in an afternoon of soulful musical stories about the tribulations and laments of hardworking people who are part of our American heritage.
