NEWS FROM BGP:

July 8, 2014

Welcome to summer! You may recall that we announced our fabulous new booking agent, Liz at Heart Roots Music, a few months ago... go Liz! While she's been getting all our ducks in order, Colby's been singing up a storm with her other group, PossumHaw, Paul's been a-giggin' out West with his friend Willa, Kirk's been busy with freelance gigs and his other group, Modern Grass Quintet, Taylor has been working on several Boston area bluegrass and folk endeavors, and Steve has been getting ready for his son's wedding on July 5th, at which we all gathered and provided some after-ceremony party music!

Here's what we want you to know:

Friday, July 25, starting at 7:30, we're playing at the Essex, NY Community Church. This beautiful spot is located on the west shore of Lake Champlain, just a 15 minute ferry ride from Charlotte, Vermont, and easy walking distance from the ferry landing in quaint Essex, NY. The address is 2743 NY Rt 22, which is right in the village, near the Dockside Restaurant. We'll play two sets and have you done in time to catch the last couple boats back to VT (if that's where you came from!). There will be a casual reception afterward (with refreshments) wherein we hope to get a chance to say hello to everyone. While they don't have advance ticket sales, we suggest you reserve seats by emailing pstaats@westelcom.com or by phone at (518) 962-2688. There are only 150 seats, and there's been a goodly amount of interest in this concert. Tickets are $10, children free. See you there!

Saturday, July 26, starting at 7:30, we're back in Francestown, NH at the Old Meeting House located at 1 Boston Rd. This is one of the most gorgeous Meeting Houses we've had the good fortune of performing in, and the folks that put on this concert are some of the most hospitable! Join us for an evening concert in a swell spot with friendly hosts and audience. You can arrange for your tickets to be held at the door by email at: nhrambler100@gmail.com, or by phone by calling Steve at (603) 547-8346. Tickets are $15. (And btw, it's a beautiful drive getting to Francestown from any direction!)

Sunday, August 10, we're back on Cape Cod for the 4th Annual Highland Hall "Bluegrass on the Lawn" at 56 Highland Drive in Falmouth, MA. We've already gotten several favorable comments from fans telling us what a great scene this is. Admission is by donation, and you're encouraged to bring a picnic. Music starts at 3 and goes until 7. We're sharing the afternoon with a band from Boston called Flatt Rabbit, whom we look forward to meeting and playing with. Join us at this stately mansion with beautiful grounds and gardens--what could be better on a summer Sunday afternoon on the Cape!?! Call (508) 495-1878 for more info. Hoping to see all our new friends from last year in Cotuit!!!

As per usual, all the above info is available at our website, www.bluegrassgospelproject.com with links from our Calendar page to each concert. If you ever have a question or concern regarding tickets or reserved seats, or any old thing, just contact us by posting at our FaceBook page. We surely look forward to catching up with a bunch of our friends--we've missed you! See you soon. Harmoniously Yours,

Colby, Taylor, Paul, Steve, Kirk, and Gene / BGP
