TAMWORTH — The annual Bluegrass on the Bearcamp, returns Thursday, July 26, at The Community School on Bunker Hill Road in South Tamworth. Once again this annual summertime treat guarantees that foot-stomping acoustic music will roll out over the valley. The fun starts at 6 p.m.
This year's concert features local favorites, Sweet Life Revue, a home-grown band with folk roots, infused with bluegrass, celtic, and blues undertones, plus headliners, the Kentucky Dirt Daubers. Hailing from Paducah, Ky. and Nashville, Tenn., the Dirt Daubers have traveled the world, singing internationally with vim, verve and vigor. According to their online bio they are "caterwaulin' hooligans [who] sing loud and proud an eclectic mix of Appalachian, ragtime, and hot jazz standards and original music." The frontman for the trio is J.D. Wilkes of the Legendary Shack Shakers.
