What kind of grass is that again?

No.  It’s not that funny weed.  It’s a progressive form of bluegrass called New Grass.  That’s right folks.  New Grass is one of two major sub-genres of bluegrass music.   Join us on Saturday for an afternoon with Old Truck Revival from 4-8pm.  You don’t just tap your foot, your whole body taps.  It’s lively, it’s fun, and it wakes up every one of your sleeping bluegrass cells and invites your body, heart, and soul to join the party.  These guys take that old generations-past style bluegrass and bridge the gap to generation-now.
