Bluegrass band Flatland Drive: April 10th!

Flatland Drive

This performance has been rescheduled for April 10th at 7pm at the Caroline County Public Library in Denton.


The band is composed of members from Denton, Maryland and Harrington, Delaware.  Their sound is influenced by the patriarchs of bluegrass music, and also pays homage to the likes of the Seldom Scene, the Bluegrass Album Band, and the Lonesome River Band.


Curt Fox, on banjo and vocals, is heavily influenced by the great J.D. Crowe, who is considered the dean of Scruggs-style bluegrass banjo.  Lee Collins, on guitar and vocals, lends his magnificent tenor voice on any song he sings for Flatland Drive.  Alan Rausch, on dobro and vocals, hails from Honolulu, Hawaii, where he started learning ukelele, and then guitar, mandolin, banjo, and pedal steel before settling on his love of playing dobro.  Rodney Collins, on electric bass and vocals, traces his musical roots from an independent rock band to learning bluegrass bass in a southern gospel band.  Brad Turner, on mandolin and vocals, began listening to bluegrass by way of Ray Davis of WAMU through a large, floor-model stereo that his father would play every evening.

Local Writers Publish Storytellers & Host a Book Launch


The Caroline County Council of Arts has had a long standing tradition of providing programs for local writers, including an annual short contest for all ages that is now in its thirteenth year, and, most recently, an adult writing club called Write On! which meets twice a month at The Foundry. At these meetings writers share their work, encourage fellow writers, and generally enjoying the process.  This fall all this activity has culminated in the publishing of “Story Tellers”, a selection of writings from Write On! members and  Short Story Contest winners.  The book is illustrated by artwork from this year’s Youth Art Show winners.
