Long Point String Band will get Carnegie Hall’s free Ivy Terrace Concert series off to a toe-tapping start, appearing at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday.
The bluegrass group will perform outdoors on Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace for an audience on the Academy Park lawn in front of New River Community and Technical College’s Lewisburg campus. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and to pack a picnic to enjoy while the music wafts through the evening air.
An acoustic group from southern West Virginia, the Long Point String Band won first place in the old-time band category at the 2017 Tazewell Old-Time and Bluegrass Fiddlers’ Convention, according to a Carnegie media release.
In case of inclement weather, the entertainment will move indoors.
Sponsored by City National Bank, the remaining Ivy Terrace Concerts this summer are:
• June 27 — Shavar (reggae)
• July 11 — Hardened and Tempered (folk/country from Austin, Texas)
• July 25 — Thomas Taylor (country)
• Aug. 8 — Krista Hughes Band (country/rock)
• Aug. 22 — B-BAMS (a little bit of everything)
