“Tribute to Carol Morgan Coy”

Bradford High School Auditeria

June 23, 2017 from 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm


The Bradford Public Library is sponsoring their 18th Bluegrass Musical Program.

There will be six bands performing. This is an outstanding line up of bluegrass groups, so don’t miss it!! These fine musicians are donating their time to provide entertainment for the library and area communities to enjoy. This year’s event will be a Tribute to Carol Coy, the founder of the Bluegrass Festival. Mrs. Coy was a staff librarian at Bradford Public Library for over 20 years. In addition, Mrs. Coy’s granddaughter, Morgan Coy Ingram will be the emcee, along with her husband.

All the groups play the local festivals and events. Several of the groups’ members have appeared on National Music lists for performances or song writing. They will have their music CD’s available to purchase. The following bands will be performing in this order: Rum River Blend, Showtime Grass, North & South, Sugargrove, Berachah Valley and Rock Island Plow Company.

A raffle will be held at the Festival for a variety of very nice items with more to come that have been donated by local businesses. These businesses, organizations and individuals have donated for this cause to help with the expense of putting on the program so that it is free for all who attend. You can stop in at the library and get your tickets at $1 each or 6 for $5. They will be also be available the evening of the show and the drawing will be held toward the end of the program.

The Bluegrass Festival will be held at the Bradford School’s Auditeria, located at 750 Railroad Avenue. Parking is available in the rear of the school off of Children’s Home-Bradford Rd. The doors will open for early seating at 4:45 p.m. At 6:15 pm, there will be a special celebration of America’s Veterans. All veterans of any Armed Forces are invited to attend.
