Over the years Country Music has welcomed artist from across the charts and EastBound finds great opportunity in that.

The Hillbilly Gypsies

 I’ve picked guitar for the last 20 years and I can tell you it’s not my strong suit. I have always loved the sounds of a guitars flat picking bass runs, a screamin fiddle, and the spine tingling banjo following the pulse of the standup bass. I have always had great respect for the people who instinctively possess the ability to dissect the frets of any bluegrass instrument and use it as a tool to pull people together from all walks of life and have a great time.

This summer I stumbled in on a bluegrass jamboree hosted by The Mountain State Brewery and starring the Hillbilly Gypsies. This group of five brings you back to old school foot stompin/hand clapping back woods bluegrass. They are true to a style of music that I’ve read has roots back to Ireland, Scotland and England and that evolved throughout American history in the mountains and country of this great land.

Check out their schedule before you make your next trip to Deep Creek Lake and be sure not to miss one hell of a good time.

Last Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of catching Garrett Community Concert Band’s Holiday Concert titled “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”.  It was a splendid performance with traditional Christmas music as well as Hanukkah favorites.  One in particular that was new and enjoyable to me was “Fum, fum, fum”.   The concert was held in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland at Garrett College’s auditorium and it was a full house.

The band, led by Musical Director Moe Turentine, is a volunteer group of musicians that was formed in 2000 and presents 3 concerts a year.    Their members are from all walks – business professionals, teachers, homemakers, retirees and students.  They are a volunteer organization supported by Garrett College and donors.  The band also offers scholarships to students pursuing advanced music education.  Their motto: “We play together out of love of music and to enjoy the company of others with a similar interest”.

They also play a July 4th concert outdoors at Garrett College, which I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy many times and highly recommend.  For more information www.garrettband.org.  And, for Deep Creek Lake, Maryland information visit www.DeepCreekLakeProperty.com.
