Kent Manor Inn Hosts Thursdays in the Park

Satyr Hill Band shot (400 x 266)Described as “one of Baltimore’s premier Bluegrass groups” by Bluegrass Unlimited, the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council has invited the Satyr Hill Band back for their annual free summer concert series, Thursdays in the Park.

Fantastic musicians with great senses of humor, the band are an audience favorite. The original Satyr Hill Band evolved from members of a well-known traditional Bluegrass band from Baltimore called Grass on the Rocks. In 1982, they adopted its current name after a steep hill just outside of Baltimore. Band members come from a variety of musical backgrounds and are known for their superb vocal harmonies. With Tom Reeves on bass, Chaz Smith on mandolin, Rick Miller on guitar, George Osing on banjo and group leader Judd Hawkins on fiddle and vocals, audiences can be sure of a terrific night of music that blends traditional and contemporary styles for an unforgettable night of music.

Satyr Hill’s “In The Grove” 2003 CD was nominated for a Wammie Award and in 2002 they released a compilation disc, “Dead on the Scene Revival: A Tribute” songs honoring Jerry Garcia, John Duffey and Courtney Johnson. CDs will be available for sale during the concert with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Arts Council.

The performance on June 27 at the Kent Manor Inn in Stevensville, Maryland at 7 p.m. The series is presented by the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council, the Maryland State Arts Council, WCTR, Tidewater Trader, and the United Way of Queen Anne’s County. Bring blankets or chairs; concert goers may bring in picnic fare and food and beverages will also be available for sale. Concerts are held rain or shine.
