BLUEGRASS COMING TO ROWLESBURG THIS SUMMER!
Bluegrass fans mark those calendars! Rowlesburg is proud to announce another new summer festival! The 1st Annual Bluegrass on the Cheat. The event is scheduled July 6, 7 & 8, 2012 in the Rowlesburg Community Park.
The festival is sponsored by C.A.S.H, Citizens Aiding Shriners Hospitals. John McGuinn, owner of the Thirsty Bear Tavern in Rowlesburg, founded this new organization to benefit children. The group has sponsored several big events in Rowlesburg to benefit Shriners Hospitals. Admission will be $10 per day. The funds go to Shriners Hospitals to aid children. The Shriners Hospitals specialize in Orthopedics, Burn Care, Cleft Lip and Palate and Injuries for children.
Cincinnati is home to perhaps WV’s nearest Shriners Hospital. Located near downtown Cincinnati, the hospital is designated by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons as a Verified Burn Center, meeting the highest standards of burn care. The hospital says, “inpatient and outpatient units are designed to allow children to recover in a safe, fun and friendly environment.
The Claire Lynch Band will headline the new Bluegrass festival. Lynch and her band are well known to Bluegrass fans all over the country. They will play Denver, Atlanta, West Palm Beach and other cities before coming to Rowlesburg. Other scheduled bands include the Highland Bluegrass Band and the Backcreek Valley Boys. More details about bands and schedules will be published later.
