Schedule of Events and Attractions:
Stuarts Opera House Presents: FREE Summer Concert Series featuring The Wayfarers at 7:00pm with a beer garden! Hailing from rural Southeast Ohio, The Wayfarers emerged onto the scene in early 2010 playing their own form of American Roots music. While much of their repertoire is drawn from the Appalachian tradition they revere, The Wayfarers fuse tight musicianship – centered largely by the fiddle – with the high energy that characterized early mountain music. With old-time radio shows setting the example, their style encompasses Appalachian dance music, traditional mountain fiddle tunes, and pre-bluegrass music of the 1920’s – resulting in a dose of nostalgic Americana.
Hay Rides! Electric tractor rides brought to you by Athena Solar Power, Athens only worker-owner solar installer.
