Local Brew Coffeehouse: Oak Hill @ Bay Spring Community Center
Mar 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Local Brew Coffeehouse: Oak Hill @ Bay Spring Community Center

Come to our next Local Brew Coffeehouse on Saturday, March 2nd and help us welcome Oak Hill back to the Brew stage! It’s hard to believe that the last time they graced a Local Brew event was when they kept people dancing until the end of the 2016 Local Brew Fiddle ‘n Folk Festival! We’ve been trying to get them back ever since. Not only have they been busy, but they’ve made some additions to their lineup, including two great, new vocalists, Gracie Anne Lulu Mitchell & Arleen Sherman.  Oak Hill plays a mix of good old rock and blues covers from the 60’s to today. Their selections feature tight vocal harmonies and a hip-shaking rhythm section.  Round out that sound with various electric and acoustic guitars and some sizzling hot blues harp.

Drownville Station will be your musical hosts and kick off the night’s music!
