Bluebillies to perform in Hartford

A traditional country and bluegrass band will be coming out of the hills of Hartford and into the firehouse for a show next Friday, March 1.

The Bluebillies are “a close harmony singing and songwriting band who don’t just sing old country songs, they embody them, performing with traditional style, sound and spirit, entertaining audiences everywhere as they travel on their mission to help revive and preserve the rich heritage of this great and uniquely American art form,” said band member Mel “Melba Deen” Guarino.

The full band grew from the original close-harmony singing and songwriting duo consisting of Mel and Mark Guarino. The Bluebillies now also include local musicians John Kribs, a singer-songwriter, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist; Doug Moody, a singer and fiddler; and Orion Kribs, who does mandolin and vocals.

Doors for the show, which costs $8, will open at 6 p.m., and music will begin at 7 p.m. Beverages and food will be available for sale, and all proceeds from the event will benefit the Hartford Fire Company. To purchase tickets or for more information call 632-5326. The Hartford fire house is located at the intersection of routes 40 and 149.
