THE BUSHMILL BAND
The Bushmill Band began circa 2006 as a few friends getting together to learn and enjoy playing the great folk, bluegrass and old time country tunes that they all loved. They found they enjoyed playing this music so much they wanted to share it with others and began playing out and around just for fun.
They've played from Scotland, MD at Buzzy's Country Store all the way over to Avenue, MD at Morris Pt. Tavern with lots of stops in between and a few forays out of St. Mary's County. They've enjoyed playing for seniors on lots of occasions and especially those at the Charlotte Hall Veteran's Home.
The Bushmill Band music is hard to categorize as they play traditional bluegrass but also nineteen sixties era folk music as well as old time and more contemporary country and folk music with their own spin on all of it. What comes through on all of their music is the joy they find in playing and the repect they have for the music.
The band features John Garner on guitar, harmonica and vocals; Ted Yeatman on guitar, banjo and vocals; Randy Stillwell on dobro; Anniejean DiDonato on fiddle and Greg Penk on vocals and stand up bass.
The doors open at 7:00 pm, and the music starts at 7:30 pm. Admission $7.00. Refreshments are available (donation requested). For more information and directions, go to www.smtmd.org.
