July 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
seats for this show are $8 and advance tickets recommended
Mandolin player Johnny Staats and guitar flatpicker Robert Shafer are two of West Virginia’s most decorated pickers. They’ve both appeared separately on the Grand Ole Opry, and both have won multiple awards for their work on their respective instruments. The duo has recorded numerous CDs together, including their latest collection of hymns: Homecoming Favorites. Though they can be classified as bluegrass players, Staats and Shafer draw from influences far beyond the boundaries of bluegrass.
