In early June of this year, one of the truly great bluegrass musicians, Stacy Phillips, unexpectedly died. Stacy was the force behind Stacy Phillips & His Bluegrass Characters. 

The band has decided to go forward and continue the great music that Stacy so loved. Please join us on September 28th to celebrate that music and Stacy's legacy.

Hudson Crossing

Bluegrass in Arlington - 2018 will feature an open jam at 12:30, followed by four local bluegrass bands. The event is free...under a shaded tent...with food vendors and blocks of street fair booths.

We will be spotlighting each participating band in each successive newsletter.

The first band to be featured, at 1:30, will be Hudson Crossing.

Fall of 2018 marks the 9th anniversary of the founding of HUDSON CROSSING. From the very beginning H.C. has stayed loyal to the sound and style of traditional Bluegrass, but as the band members have grown musically H.C. occasionally steps out beyond the traditional borders to include songs that would not be readily recognized as Bluegrass. Their philosophy is simple: regardless of its original genre, if it’s a good song it can be played and performed joyfully.

A carefully selected playlist of traditional, non-traditional and original music makes Hudson Crossing a band that truly does have something for everyone, and their performances are always lively and fun.

The band members are: Dave Cobb, Guitar and Mary DeBerry, Bass, both founding members. Steve Nash on Banjo, Steve Romerio on Mandolin, and Terry Ghee on Fiddle”

Angell Bandd, New Breaks, & Bash Bish Bluegrass Band will also be playing on September 29.
