On March 16 at 7:30 p.m., the Foothill Bluegrass Band brings three-part harmony and acoustic instrumentation to the Bok Tower Gardens Visitor Center. This traditional bluegrass performance will also include four-part harmony gospel selections.
Former schoolmates Scott Rowell and Dave Beaumont performed bluegrass music together on many occasions as teenagers. Several years ago, at a local picking party, they heard the golden voice of Bill Neely and the Foothill Band was launched. The present Foothill Band also includes bass sensation Ronnie McGalliard, renowned bluegrass banjo picker Ron Rimmer, and the multi-talented Donnie Harvey.
Since its formation, the Foothill Band has performed at bluegrass festivals, city functions, reunions, parties, political functions, The Florida Opry, the San Ann Rattlesnake Festival, the Dade City Kumquat Festival, county fairs, VIP dinners, and other events throughout central Florida. The band recently released their first CD, Things That Endure.
The concert is $25 per person for general admission seating. For tickets or more information, visit www.boktowergardens.org or call 863-734-1222.
