Western Pennsylvania bluegrass band will perform July 26, 2014 at 1:00 p.m.
The Carnegie Science Center will host bluegrass band “Border Ride” on July 26, 2014 in the BLUe! Exhibit Gallery. The group hails from the western Pennsylvanian and Eastern Ohio border area and specializes in bluegrass and progressive non-traditional “newgrass” that combines vocal harmonies, musical proficiency and original works to create a new sound. The group is made up of five members: Cathy Pearson (fiddle), Scott Pearson (mandolin and fiddle), Jimmy Metz (banjo, dobro and vocals), Darla Evans (bass and vocals), and Nelson Boosel (guitar and vocals).
The concert is free with general admission to the Center. BLUE! Performances are sponsored by Dollar Bank and are scheduled for each Saturday in July and August. The BLUE! Exhibit will run through January 1, 2015 and consists of a hands on display that features molded blocks of blue foam in all shapes and sizes from small enough for a tabletop project to large enough to climb on.
Carnegie Science Center will close at 4:00 p.m. on July 26, 2014 for the Jason Aldean concert on the North Shore.
