If your inclined to venture South of Boston on Saturday, March 9th, the Blue Moon Coffeehouse at Channing Unitarian Universalist Church in Rockland,MA features the exciting, young bluegrass band, Chasing Blue. Just back from a US tour, Chasing Blue plays a mix of original and traditional bluegrass material with unique arrangements and hard-driving style. They have played at many bluegrass festivals, including Joe Val, Grey Fox, Podunk, Ossipee Valley, Saddleback Mountain, North Branch, and Laurie Blue (Canada). They have also played FOX News Austin, KUT Folkways Radio, Berklee's International Folk Festival, The Music Barn (Canada) and a Sponsored Showcase for the BBU at IBMA. Between sets by Chasing Blue, there will be an open mic.   The show starts at 7:30 and tickets are $7 at the door.   For more information, visit . You can check out the band at their website: or watch their official music video on YouTube here:

Direct from Prince Edward Island, the acclaimed duo Richard Wood & Gordon Belsher will light the room on fire with their high-energy, high-quality music. Fiddler Wood and guitarist/vocalist Belsher are accomplished performers who routinely electrify concert halls up and down the east coast of US & Canada.
