Concert series to feature bluegrass musicians

Bluegrass music is on tap for this month’s Brownstown/Ewing Main Street Summer Concert Series show, set for 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Heritage Park, 121 E. Walnut St., Brownstown.

The featured act will be Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass. Also performing will be Sure Shot Turkey Dusters with special guest Gary Anderson.

Admission to the show is free thanks to sponsors Carl and Jenny Shake and the Jackson County Visitor Center. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Danny Paisley plays guitar, Ryan Paisley plays mandolin and Bobby Lundy plays bass, and all three provide vocals. The other members are T.J. Lundy on fiddle and Mark Delaney on banjo.

The group was founded by Bob Paisley in 1980. After he lost his two-year battle with cancer Nov. 29, 2004, his son, Danny, took over the group. Since then, they have been touring domestically and internationally as Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass.

The Landenberg, Pennsylvania-based group, has won multiple awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Their album “The Room Over Mine” earned accolades and significant chart action, and the song “Don’t Throw Mama’s Flowers Away” won the 2009 IBMA Award for Song of the Year.

The group has also received several IBMA nominations for Emerging Artist of The Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year. In 2016, Danny Paisley won Male Vocalist of the Year.

Since its inception, the group has traveled to more than 15 countries around the world and performed for a presidential inauguration and an official state visit of Princess Anne from Great Britain.
