Bluegrass Rocks at S.G.S.

Bluegrass Rocks SGS 2010

As a culminating activity for a unit on folk instruments and Bluegrass Music, Mrs. Sabrina Minx’s Arts and Humanities Class at the Salyersville Grade School enjoyed guest speakers and Bluegrass Artists Butch Florence, Leonard Florence, Carter Brickey, Rudy and Stacey Blanton.  Leonard of Flemingsburg, KY picked the Banjo while Butch of West Union, OH played the acoustic guitar.  Both Leonard and Butch are members of the Bluegrass Gospel Music Band “The Florences”.  Local artist Carter Brickey shared the fiddle and mandolin.  H.W.M.S. teacher Rudy Blanton and Technology Supporter Stacey Blanton, both of Salyersville, shared the history of the instruments and played several including the bass and dobro.  Mrs. Minix and her students really enjoyed learning the music of our heritage and its instruments and would like to thank each of the musicians for coming to S.G.S.
