The summer’s final Howlin’ at the Moon concert will feature the perennial favorites Washington County Line Bluegrass.

They feature the songs of bluegrass giants such as Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, the Stanley Brothers, and Red Allen, as well as folk music icons and singer/songwriters including Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Paxton, Bob Dylan, and Ralph McTell.
