Windy Hill is blowing into town from the San Francisco Bay area for a night of high energy bluegrass music. The event includes a public jam, with pickers and grinners welcome from 4pm and a dinner at 6pm. The cost for the meal is $10 in advance and $15 at the door and benefits the church.
“Formed in 2008 by a couple of high school friends from the Bay Area, Windy Hill has covered a lot of ground in 10 years, performing all over the western states and recording three albums, with their fourth arriving in June 2018. While the band is steeped in the traditional style, they’ve cultivated their own distinct bluegrass sound. The balance between their love for classic bluegrass and keenness for exploring fresh musical ideas defines their style and approach, and makes them a fan-favorite for music lovers of all types.
Three-part harmony, lonesome duets, banjo breakdowns, honky-tonk sorrow, blues mandolin, and original material all combine to create their vision for bluegrass music and its future. They’ve won numerous awards, performed at festivals, venues, and bars across the west coast, and released three albums: Bluegrass Sounds from California (2017), The Lonesome Garbage Man (2013), Let’s Go To The Fair (2011)” ~ windyhillbluegrass.com
Please join the Otter Opry and Windy Hill for a night of music at Monterey United Methodist Church at 7pm on Saturday September 8th.
