Old-time Southern Appalachian band to play outdoor concert


Fiddlesticks, an old-time Southern Appalachian band, will play an outdoor concert from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 25 at the Village Library of Wrightstown.
The band plays and sings all over the Delaware Valley. Their sound is typified by a rhythmic style of fiddle and the claw-hammer banjo style. They play tunes and songs that bring audiences back to the simplicity, joys and sorrows of the past.
Appalachian mountain music originates in remote regions of the eastern U.S., where the Scots, Irish and English settled. It mixes the music of those cultures with African and Native American music.

The Fiddlesticks include fiddle player and singer Nancy Shill, banjo and autoharp player Dick Devore, multi-instrumentalist Greg Meyers, and bass player Carol Behrens.
Music lovers can register online at If it rains, the concert will be held indoors and attendance will be limited to 25 people. Those who registered will be admitted first.
