WAIS presents bluegrass band

   The 2004-2005 Walton Arts & Ideas Series kicks off this month with the The Old School Bluegrass Band performing at the university at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 23, in the Walton Fine Arts Center.
   The Old School Bluegrass Band celebrates “traditional” bluegrass, with most of their selections coming from the masters of the early to mid-20th Century, including Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, and the Stanley Brothers. The band invites you to join them as they embrace the delightful sounds of this original mountain music, which has, in recent years, enjoyed a new popularity. Whether it’s the bright tinkling strum of fingers playing a banjo or the blend of voices in multi-part unity, the sound of bluegrass is bright, timeless and full of rejoicing. This will be an evening for the whole family to enjoy!
   Tickets for the event are $10 for the general public. Tickets for university students, faculty and staff are free.
