A bluegrass trio will perform Saturday night for the third installment of the Bluemont Concert Series in downtown Warrenton.
Danny Knicely, Will Lee and John Flower will play on Culpeper Street, starting at 7:30 p.m. July 15.
Audience members bring lawn chairs and blankets to the lawn of the Warren Green Building at Culpeper and Hotel streets.
Mr. Lee (banjo and guitar), Mr. Knicely (mandolin and guitar) and Mr. Flower (bass) “navigate a deep and intuitive current of time, melody and harmony that will move you. Their brand new project – The Evening News – includes originals, old favorites, a cappella and hot instrumental numbers, and tight harmony singing,” according to a Bluemont press release.
Mr. Knicely and Mr. Flower earned acclaim for their work with David Via and Corn Tornado in the early 2000s.
Mr. Knicely and Mr. in 2006 released a well-received duet album, “Murders, Drownings and Lost Loves,” but the three first performed together as part of the award-winning Magraw Gap in the mid-1990s.
Concert admission is $5 per person, $4 for Bluemont Friends and seniors, $2 for children younger than 12. Proceeds support Bluemont’s Artists-In-Education program in Fauquier schools.
The Bluemont concerts in Warrenton feature a beer and wine garden showcasing local beverages. Concert goers must be 21 or older and have a valid ID to purchase alcohol.
In the event of bad weather, the concert would move to Taylor Middle School at 350 E. Shirley Ave.
