Celebrate New Concord, the summer entertainment series now in its 14th year, will stage its season finale with The Muleskinner Band and opening act The Yurco Boys on Tuesday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. in New Concord's Village Park.
The Muleskinner Band performs a blend of country, bluegrass and gospel, featuring vocal harmonies, storytelling and a bit of humor. The group also mixes it up by offering acoustic versions of well-known pop songs by The Drifters, The Doobie Brothers and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
The Yurco Boys, comprised of Tanner Yurco, Lane Yurco and Clayton Neil, all of Cambridge, are already pro pickers on the banjo, mandolin and guitar, respectively. They have played widely at a variety of venues and competitions and are making their second Celebrate New Concord appearance as an opening act.
This event is free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating. In the event of rain, the performance will be moved into the firehouse at the park. Food service will be provided by the National Trail Ruritan Club, with proceeds benefiting the New Concord Food Pantry.
Celebrate New Concord is sponsored by the Village of New Concord and is made possible through the support of the New Concord Board of Trade and the members of the CNC Patronage Program, which allows individuals, businesses and organizations to contribute their financial support to the summer series.
Those wishing to join the patronage program can pick up an enrollment form at New Concord Village Hall during regular business hours, or at any CNC performance.
