We continue to work on building our new home this fall and as we do this, we would like to offer our community the opportunity to sponsor a series of their choosing as we create our space and our programming.

Serene Green - Play Video
Serene Green is a four-piece bluegrass band from Northeastern Pennsylvania. This band’s passion for playing bluegrass comes from a position of respect and gratitude for the pioneers of this great music—such as Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs—but Serene Green performances are anything but an imitation. The members of Serene Green share a common goal—to influence the progression of bluegrass music with their own songs. Serene Green performances include mostly original songs, often mixed with a few traditional bluegrass songs or fiddle tunes. Serene Green is on a mission to preserve one of America's greatest traditions, with a vibrant sound emphasizing instrumental prowess, soaring three-part harmonies, and original songwriting. The quartet released its all-original, debut studio album, "To Whom It Pertains", in June 2017.

“I do not make predictions, but you will totally dig Man About a Horse.” — Steve Martin, Unreal Bluegrass
Man About a Horse combines strong ties to the bluegrass tradition with a progressive streak that informs their original songwriting and unorthodox song selections. Their music reflects the wide range of influences on this Philadelphia-based band, from blues and rock to classical and pop, all blended together by a traditional bluegrass lineup. Man About a Horse’s first full-length album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart in 2017, earning praise from Bluegrass Unlimited, British Bluegrass News, and others. The band notched its first position on the Bluegrass Today radio chart in 2018. They’ve performed at festivals and in venues around the U.S., sharing the stage with Old Crow Medicine Show, Cabinet, Danny Barnes, Hot Buttered Rum, Wood & Wire, Donna the Buffalo, and many more.
