Howlin’ at the Moon

2014 Howlin Poster

The summer’s final Howlin’ at the Moon concert will feature the perennial favorites Washington County Line Bluegrass. Washington County Line serves up straight-ahead traditional bluegrass, seasoned with bluegrass interpretations of early country, folk, and contemporary tunes. 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.
