Evening of bluegrass and folk at Neversink Museum on Oct. 28

| 15 Feb 2012 | 09:48

    Headliners: Mike Baglione and Breakneck Annie Band Cuddebackville — The Neversink Valley Museum will hold a fall benefit concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28, at the D&H Canal Park Visitor's Center, 58 Hoag Rd. Cuddebackville. Anne Loeb plays guitar, bass, concertina, accordion. She performs throughout the Hudson Valley solo and as part of the band Breakneck Annie, which performs Americana, folk/traditional music, and "good time music" — not quite bluegrass, not quite old time, not quite folk. They play an array of traditional and nontraditional instruments: Gene Mueller plays banjo, Graham Vest, mandolin, Terry Seeley, guitar, and Bill Buskey, washboard. Mike Baglione is a founding member of the bluegrass bands Tin Roof, Oxford Depot, and the Jersey Mountain Boys, and is considered one of the finest guitar players in the region. He has performed at clubs and coffeehouses, and on festival stages throughout the Northeast. He has also performed live on radio stations WFDU, WJFF, WTBQ and WNYC, and has made numerous appearances at the former Bodles Opera House in Chester and the Warwick Valley Winery. The benefit concert will support the museum's community outreach programs, whose movable exhibits take the story of the D&H Canal and Neversink Valley to people unable to make it to the museum. General admission is $7. Museum members pay $5. This event is made possible in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts' Decentralization Program administered by Arts in Orange. The Neversink Valley Area Museum is open Friday through Sunday from noon until 4 p.m. through Oct. 31 and by appointment. For more information call 754-8870 or visit www.neversinkmuseum.org.
