There’s something so appealing about a night of old time music, flowing from a country barn in our own Carroll County. The Historical Society of Carroll County is planning an evening of music, food and fun with its Bluegrass, Bourbon and Bocce event, Friday, Sept. 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Rob’s Bluegrass Barn, 821 View West Drive, Westminster.

Jennifer Munch is a HSCC board member and chair of the event. We are repeating the sold out event that we first had in 2019. Those who attend will enjoy the music of nationally known bluegrass band, Sideline. This six-piece, hard driving bluegrass band from North Carolina is sure to stir souls with their unique blend of songs, ranging range from pulse-pounding, dynamic barn burners to emotional tunes sung from the heart.

Ticket holders will want to bring a blanket or lawn chair to stretch out on the lovely lawn to soak in the sounds. Tickets cost $40 per person in advance or $45 at the door. In 2019, we sold out and there were no door sales!

Attendees will enjoy gourmet burgers, hand-cut fries, and frozen custard from The Cow, plus soft drinks and free bourbon tastings from Patapsco Distilling Company. In addition, beer from Johansson’s and a variety of wines will be available for purchase. After dinner, attendees are invited to play bocce ball under the stars on a lighted court. We are going to have a referee from the Baltimore Bocce Club on hand. If people want to play bocce, it’s there and it’s part of the admission. And if they want to learn how to play bocce ball, there will be people who can help them learn the game.

Bluegrass is uniquely American music, and we are excited to reach out to members of our community who may not know much about HSCC and all the things that we do. This evening will be lots of fun under the stars with good music and good food.
