Summer Ensemble Concert – Ottawa County Bluegrass Band
Ottawa County Bluegrass Band

*** FREE SUMMER CONCERT SERIES ***
Bring a lawn chair and picnic and get ready for a fun, festive Summer Ensemble Concert with the Ottawa County Bluegrass Band on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at the McBride Arboretum. This is a Bluegrass experience you won’t want to miss! You’ll hear the acoustic guitar’s incessant boom chucka boom chucka of alternating bass lines layered over wonderfully harmonious strings or the delightful slide of a resonating guitar. When you hear the rapid string tickling and chopping strum of the mandolin and you feel the deep resonating thumping of a doghouse bass – that’s Bluegrass. When you hear the banjo picker’s fingers dance melodiously across the strings and make your ears smile – that’s Bluegrass. And of course when you hear the blissful vocal harmonies that tell such wonderful humanistic stories, you have entered the Bluegrass dominion.
What: Free summer concert ensemble series by the Firelands Symphony Orchestra

About The Ottawa County Bluegrass Band
We’ve been playing together since the late 90’s. Joe Sr. moved here from southwestern Va. many years ago and today all of us make our home in the Port Clinton area. We love bluegrass music and hopefully it shows through in our approach to it. With the retirement of longtime bass playerb Archie Stinson, Vern Brink from Gibsonburg, Ohio has taken over on the upright bass.
- Vern Brink (bass)
- Joe Mitchell Sr. (mandolin)
- Joe Mitchell Jr. (banjo)
- Dennis Mitchell (guitar)
