MUSIC AND FUN.
Can a mountain dulcimer player front a string band that
plays music ranging from traditional Appalachian play
party tunes to cowboy swing to contemporary pop?

mandolin, Sherril Keever on guitar and bowed psaltery

fourth appearance at our festival, Slight Departure will
demonstrate the musicianship, variety and fun
that have made them a favorite act..
