Wayfarers to Close Out Stuart’s Summer Concert Series< < Back to
Stuart’s Opera House will conclude this year’s Free Summer Concert Series tonight at 7 p.m. with some homegrown talent.
Hailing from rural Southeast Ohio, The Wayfarers emerged onto the scene in early 2010, playing their own blend of American Roots music. Their live performances have attracted people of all ages, drawn to the sounds of thumping washtub bass, driving guitars, sawing fiddles and rich vocal harmonies.
With old-time radio shows setting the example, The Wayfarers’ style encompasses Appalachian dance music, traditional mountain fiddle tunes, and pre-bluegrass music of the 1920s, resulting in a dose of nostalgic Americana. However, the band is not a nostalgia act–their intent is to carry the music forward with creativity and authenticity, while making it contemporary and fun.
The Free Summer Concert Series is held in conjunction with Nelsonville’s Final Fridays on the Square, and attendees are invited to arrive early for art openings, exhibitions and more, starting at 5:30 p.m. Stuart’s Opera House’s 1879 Gallery is hosting the artwork of Passion Works Studio in Athens. A beer garden will also be set up in Stuart’s parking lot. For more information, visit stuartsoperahouse.org.
