Earth night bluegrass
Looking Glass Artists Center, 405 N. Lee St., will be open during Earth Night Out on Friday, April 20. The shop will be open from 5-9 p.m., and the black box theatre will feature traditional bluegrass music by Montgomery Store & Co with a free performance 6:30-8:30 p.m. Local and regional bluegrass musicians are invited to join in for a jam.
The E. H. Montgomery General Store in the Historic Village of Gold Hill is host to some of the region’s best bluegrass musicians. Each Friday evening the store is filled to standing room only with folks listening to the toe tapping sounds. During the warm months the music can be heard throughout the village as musicians gather outside as well as inside the store to pick and sing.
