We return to Essex, NY on Friday, July 24th to their lovely Community Concert Series, which takes place 2-minutes’ walk from the ferry landing. We’ve again arranged for Vermonters to make the last ferry back to Charlotte, which lends those attendees the sensation of taking an exotic excursion by land and sea to a dreamy, faraway place with great music. It’s a fun trip!
What a great summer it’s going to be, and even better if we see you at one of our concerts!
Colby, Taylor, Paul, Steve, Kirk, and Gene

About the Bluegrass Gospel Project
Unparalleled vocal harmonies, eclectic repertoire and roots planted in the bluegrass tradition – yield complex, stirring music from this group of unique individuals. The six members of the BGP bring decades of experience to the group.
Taylor Armerding, the group’s front man, mandolin player and singer, was a founder and lead singer for Northern Lights, the progressive bluegrass group that took the bluegrass world by storm in the 1980s. He was invited by Gene White, Jr. (fiddle) to form the group in 2001 along with Paul Miller (vocals, guitar), Steve Light (banjo, Dobro, guitar, vocals) and other notable musicians to do a one-time performance to a packed house on New Year’s Eve. The band’s chemistry and the music’s broad appeal was powerful beyond anyone’s expectations, and the group continued to perform, with Colby Crehan (female lead vocalist) and Kirk Lord (upright bass) joining the BGP in 2007. The group’s natural on-stage abilities sweep the audience off their feet with smooth, blissful vocal work, seminal musicianship, and a camaraderie that few bands exhibit.
