The Buckey House will once again open its doors to the public at 7:30 p.m. Saturday for a lively evening of soul-searching, foot-tapping music.
This month's concert features Joe Herrmann, a Hampshire County singer and multi-instrumentalist on guitar, banjo and fiddle, who has been making music for more than 45 years. He is well-known in traditional music circles for his singing and playing. He co-founded The Critton Hollow String Band with his wife, Sam Herrmann, in 1975, and has toured internationally and recorded eight albums. He also is known for his patient and generous teaching.
Herrmann's performance will include songs and instrumentals from traditional and contemporary sources. His songs express a range of experience. Herrmann has played at numerous folk music venues, festivals and concerts, including the Birchmere, the Kennedy Center, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Carter Family Fold, the Vancouver Folk Festival, Clearwater's Hudson River Revival and the Upper Potomac Dulcimer Festival. He has appeared on radio shows such as "Mountain Stage," "Voices from the Mountains" and "Live at the Birchmere," and on television shows such as "Live at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall," "Music from Home" and "The Today Show."
The Buckey House is located at 10 Main St. in Beverly. Anyone interested in reserving a seat at the concert should call 304-635-0359.
