On Sunday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m., the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts is hosting a fundraiser concert at the Colebrook Country Club for the new Center for the Arts facility in Columbia (the former Shrine of Our Lady of Grace). The new Arts Center was purchased in July of 2018 by the GNWCA and is presently undergoing infrastructure upgrades.
The popular band provides first-rate bluegrass music fresh from the hills of Vermont. The trio are former members of the bluegrass band Gopher Broke.
Bluegrass Unlimited describes them as “seasoned pickers,” with Steve Wright on guitar and vocals, Gary Darling on mandolin and vocals, and Chris Cruger on bass and vocals. The three are also members of the well-known band Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing.
Seven Days newspaper calls the Bayley-Hazen Boys “A brilliant trio whose fine instrumental chops are ably matched by their sweet harmonies and easy melodies.”
The band has played at numerous venues and events around the area, including at First Night North in St. Johnsbury, Vt., and at the Peacham Music Festival in Peacham, Vt.
The proceeds from all the ticket sales will be donated to the Arts Center project.
Tickets for this show are available in advance at Fiddleheads on Main Street in Colebrook, at $15 each, at the door on the night of the concert, or by calling 246-8998. To find out more about this and other upcoming GNWCA concerts, visit the Facebook page or visit www.gnwca.org
