Barefoot Boys play in Andes June 21


Kick off your shoes and start off your summer fun with a concert of Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain folk songs, ballads, square dance tunes, and instrumental medleys by The Barefoot Boys. You’ll relish this high energy, string band trio’s rollicking renditions of regional music, played on nine different instruments and sung with three-part harmonies. The concert, sponsored by The Andes Society for History and Culture (ASHC) will take place on Saturday, June 21 at 7 p.m. at The Pleasant Valley Meeting House on the Tremperskill.
The barefoot Boys are Rich Bala (vocals, guitar, mountain dulcimer), Tom White (vocals, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, concertina, hammered dulcimer) and Rick Hill (vocals, standup bass).
Their concert on June 21 will include authentic, traditional songs about life along the Hudson River and in the Catskill Mountains from long ago, including selections from their second, recently released CD, “Sweetwater Passage,” about the inland waterways of the area. General admission to the concert is $10.

The Pleasant Valley Meeting House is an acoustically-fine former church building, now owned and maintained by the ASHC, located at the corner of the Tremperskill (county Route 1), and Bussey Hollow Road, about five miles from the hamlet of Andes.
