The Bluegrass for Hospice-2015, now in its 7th year, will be held on Saturday October 24, 2015 and will feature Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice and Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers. The event will be held at the Flat Iron Farm in Great Mills, Maryland. It is located on Flat Iron Road just 1.5 miles from MD Route 5. The event begins at Noon with gates opening at 11:00 am. All proceeds for the day go to support the Hospice House of St. Mary’s County.
Though Joe Mullins hails from Southwest Ohio and Junior Sisk grew up hundreds of miles away in Southwest Virginia, their mutual love of classic bluegrass music and its creators connects them like long lost brothers. It is only fitting that these two men should join together to honor the mentors whose work and sacrifices paved the way for their own rise to the top. They did just that, and more, with their Hall of Fame Bluegrass – a tribute to members of the IBMA Hall of Fame.
Performing with Junior and Joe will be The Norris Brothers, Recycled Bluegrass, Bluegrass Gospel Express, Cousins in Harmony with Jay Armsworthy and Woddy Norris, Bubby Abell & Spoon Creek, Charlie Thompson & Bottom County Bluegrass with the grand finale being a rare Hall of Fame Bluegrass Extravaganza featuring Junior Sisk & Joe Mullins. This will be one show you won't want to miss especially considering that it all benefits Hospice House of St. Mary's County.
