Hickory Hill Bluegrass Band will be performing their second annual free concert at Lanes Chapel United Methodist Church , 8720 Old Jacksonville Highway, Tyler on Saturday, July 29 at 6:30 pm., 903-561-5703

Celebrating their 37th anniversary in September, 2016, Hickory Hill has proven to be one of Texas’ most popular and enduring acoustic groups.  The band emerged from Avinger and carved out a history of making folks feel at home with a growing collection of great songs and stories blended with love and humor.

The band includes John Early, Avinger, Tx, guitar; Bob Stegall, Jacksonville, bass; Wes Perry, Lubbock, banjo; Michael Morrison, Mesquite, mandolin and guitar; and Milo Deering, Dallas, on fiddle and most other things with strings.

Their latest CD “The Kings of Texas Folkgrass,” is a name given to them by bluegrass MC Mike Powell.  Mike will also perform his music and Christian comedy Saturday night.

Sunday, July 30 at 10:00 am, Hickory Hill will lead the worship service, and Mike Powell will preach Jesus.
