To the delight of a packed house, seven of the world’s greatest banjo players filled the Bardavon 1869 Opera House with musical styles ranging from bluegrass and old time to the most dreamy, newest age stringed musings. Seemingly every moment from Peter Wernick’s first notes encouraging newbies to play two chord songs to an encore where Bela Fleck and Tony Trishka teamed up with four hands playing one banjo, the night brought pure magic on the wings thirty five strings.

Last Friday night (10/26/12), an audience of devoted bluegrass fans was treated to a nearly flawless performance by the Oldtime Bluegrass Singers at Christ Church. This was their second HVBA sponsored show in Poughkeepsie in the past two years and they did not disappoint.
