Bluebillies to play in Hartford

B y Jaime Thomas

Hartford’s own bluegrass band will give a home-town performance at the firehouse next Saturday, March 8 at 7 p.m.

For the second year in a row, the Bluebillies will play what they describe as a mix of classic country, bluegrass and Americana music.

Chris Jones, president of the fire company auxiliary, said the band is “very, very good.”

“They play a lot of places locally, so they do have a local following,” she said. The founders of the band, Mark and Melody Guarino, play with a variety of special guests. This year’s performance will include Kevin Maul on pedal steel, Johnny Kribs on lead guitar and Orion Kribs on mandolin.

On the band’s Facebook page, the musicians describe their unique style.

“The Bluebillies don’t just sing Americana 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,” they wrote.

At the event, which is a fundraiser for the Hartford Volunteer firehouse and rescue squad, there will also be food and drinks available.

The concert is family friendly; tickets are $10 and are available either at the door or by calling 632-5326. The firehouse is located at the corner of Routes 40 and 149.

“It’s cabin fever time, so come on out,” Jones said.
