Bluegrass Night, Saturday, May 18th
May Bluegrass Night features Calabogie Road from Michigan making their Metamora Opry Barn debut.
Calabogie Road is a true West Michigan favorite. Tight harmonies, great song selections, and a passion for performing and entertaining are the hallmarks of the Calabogie Road Experience.
As veterans of Michigan's Bluegrass scene, going back to 1983 and earlier, the members of Calabogie Road truly enjoy every minute onstage and there is always something for everybody at their concerts. Hot pickin' from Mark's mandolin and Steve's banjo, exciting fiddling from Marten, the very best rhythm guitar around from Ruth, and a solid bass line from John make for some exciting shows! Throw in their great harmonies and humor and what have you got? THE CALABOGIE ROAD experience!
$8 at the door, doors at 5:30, house band at 6, Calabogie Road at 7
