In support of the arts, the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, NH, today announced the “Bluegrass at the Pines” festival on Sunday, July 13, from Noon to 8:00pm. “It’s time for New Hampshire to enjoy summer bluegrass,” says Don Upton, Chairman of the sponsoring organization. The one-day event, which overlooks majestic Mt. Monadnock in southwest New Hampshire, features great bluegrass music by several New England bluegrass bands that are well-known in the region. This is one of the very few day-long bluegrass festivals scheduled in New Hampshire in 2014, according to several bluegrass-related websites.
The Cathedral is an open-air national memorial dedicated to the memory of all Americans who serve the Nation. In the search of peace, it is open to the public as a place of spiritual, cultural, and environmental appreciation. “As part of our expanding menu of activities, ‘Bluegrass at the Pines’ is a logical extension of our mission statement,” says Upton.
Four bluegrass groups will be providing great entertainment – Hot Mustard, Southeast Expressway, Bump Road Band, and the Moonlight Ramblers – and will feature the best of bluegrass on the grounds of the 200-acre outdoor Cathedral of the Pines. According to Tom Doane, program chairman, “Each of these groups is well-known in the region for their unique sound and we look forward to hosting them. This will be a great time for everyone who comes!”
