A mix of the new and the old, the concert features banjo legend Tony Trischka’s brand new quartet, while twin banjo band Hot Mustard reunites after an eight-year hiatus to open the show.
Steeped in Bluegrass, while stretching out into Celtic, Americana, and Progressive music, Tony Trischka & Robot Plane includes acoustic music all-stars Jacob Joliff (mandolin), Jared Engel (acoustic bass), and Hannah Read (fiddle). These extraordinarily versatile and talented musicians are alumni of bands such as Country Cooking, Breakfast Special, Joy Kills Sorrow, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Bela Fleck’s My Bluegrass Heart.

Did you watch the Queen’s Funeral “live” today?
If you can trace your ancestry back to the mid 1700s, the King of Great Britain was keeping track of your ancestors before then because prior to the Declaration of Independence, he was still trying to get tax dollars out of them.
While watching the proceedings of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, I wanted to trace a piece of jewelry that I had always thought was junk jewelry because great aunt Annie called it a “trinket”.

BELLOWS FALLS — Nashville-based Tiffany Williams grew up in an Eastern Kentucky coal camp house, the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of coal miners. Her debut album, All Those Days of Drinking Dust, produced by Grammy-nominated Duane Lundy, is solidly in the New Appalachian Movement that tangles tradition and heritage with contemporary leanings. Her evocative voice rises like the mountains and wanders low and snaky as the creeks of the place she was born and raised.

Utilities Division crews will start Fall Flushing of the Town water mains on Friday, September 23 and continue through Friday, October 7. Occasional daytime flushing will continue throughout the week of October 11th through 14th
Customers are asked to check the flushing schedule closely as flushing causes water discoloration, low water pressure and in some areas, intervals of no water. You may experience a short period of discolored water or air in the water lines after flushing is complete in your area. Running the cold water for a few minutes should clear the lines if this happens.
