Do it tonight: Bluegrass Concert
Do you sometimes sit at home surrounded by your homework secretly wishing you were at a bluegrass concert? If the answer is yes, which, let’s be honest, it is, then y’all should come on down to Rosse Hall tonight for one of Rural by Design’s fabulous events. They are hosting a bluegrass concert that is sure to be pretty insane, mostly because it features fiddle-playing. As long as there is someone playing the spoons, I will have personally experienced one of my lifelong dreams…to watch someone play the spoons. You don’t want to miss this.
What: The Rural by Design Concert: “Mountain Music, Southeast by Southwest”
When: April 6th (today) at 8:00 PM
Where: Rosse Hall
