The Bluemont Summer Concert series continues this Friday with a performance by Furnace Mountain! The concert will take place on the steps of the 1840 Frederick County Court House at 7:30 PM.
Furnace Mountain consists of Dave Van Deventer on Fiddle and Vocals, Morgan Morrison on Bouzouki and Vocals, Aimee Curl on Bass and Vocals, Danny Knicely on Mandolin, and includes transient members Zach Lester or Bodhran, and John Flower on Washtub. The band has graced stages near and far, from the Yangtzee River in China to the banks of the Shenandoah River, where they host the famous Watermelon Park Fest each year. The music of Furnace Mountain is at times lively and raucous, with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki. It is at other times poignant and poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest songs ever written.
All are welcome, bring lawn chairs, blankets and picnics; no pets, alcohol, or smoking allowed; refreshments are available for sale by local community organizations. In the event of bad weather, the indoor location will be Winchester First Presbyterian Church.
