Bluegrass Band at Bistro Off Broadway
Darke County Center for the Arts...
The Muleskinner Band will perform their unique blend of bluegrass,
gospel, and country music at the Bistro Off Broadway in Greenville on
Thursday, March 8. A part of Darke County Center for the Arts casual
Coffeehouse Series, the show starts at 7 p.m. “An evening with the
Muleskinners may include a little Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young,
some Patsy Cline, and something from the Doobie Brothers as well as
traditional bluegrass songs,” said Keith Rawlins, DCCA Artistic
Director. “You can count on tight harmonies, excellent musicianship,
and delightful storytelling from these outstanding performers, almost
guaranteeing a good time for all,” Rawlins concluded.
The Muleskinner Band, which has been performing for nearly 20 years, is
made up of founding member Bill Purk, who sings and plays guitar and
mandolin, singer/bass guitarist Gary Markin, guitarist/vocalist Ed
Weisenbach, and newest member banjo player Jim Peterson. The group has
appeared on The Nashville Network, performed at the Ohio State Fair,
and opened for Diamond Rio and The Kentucky Headhunters, as well as
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series offers concert-goers the opportunity to enjoy
high quality performing artists in a comfortable social setting where
food and drink can also be enjoyed. The series is sponsored by Tom and
Julie Graber, Steve and Eileen Litchfield, and Rodney Oda.
Additionally, the Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state
tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and
cultural enrichment for all Ohioans; this program is supported in part
by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
