Outdoor Bluegrass Concert with Buddy Merriam and Back Roads

Saturday, July 14 | 7-9 PM | FREE

Bring your chairs, blankets, and picnics and make a night of it! Reservations not required.

Get ready to tap your toes and smack your thighs! For over 30 years, Buddy Merriam and his band Back Roads have been bringing the edgy, hard-driving sound of traditional bluegrass to audiences throughout the country.  Buddy’s powerhouse Monroe-style mandolin propels the band ever forward, together with rock-solid banjo, bass, and guitar, and strong, emotional singing from his band-mates, Buddy has long been a favorite on the Bluegrass circuit.

Buddy formed Back Roads in 1980 out of his love and respect for traditional Bluegrass music. He became close friends with the Father of Bluegrass music, Bill Monroe, and got to learn and eventually perform with him. On Sept. 19,2015 Buddy was honored to receive the “Long Island Sound Award” from the LI Music Hall of Fame “For Outstanding Contributions to Long Island’s Musical Heritage.

In the event of rain, concerts will take place indoors in the theater.
