Sunday August 7 Freeman Store and Museum 1:00 pm
We had fun playing and singing with our friend Jody Marshall (Hammered Dulcimer) at the Freeman Store on Sunday (July 24). [See photo below] We played inside the store because the weather was so hot and muggy. We will be doing it again on Sunday August 7. This time, weather willing, we will be out on the front porch. Come see us and say hello! It is a free concert. The Freeman Store & Museum are located 131 Church Street NE, Vienna, VA 22180. We start at 1pm.

A little history on “Hickory Grove”
We organized our band in 1989 to play Folk, Americana, and Bluegrass music. We named the band after an area on the campus of The Defiance College [in Defiance, Ohio] where Jack and Bev first met. It was called “The Hickory Grove”.
In the fall of 1993 we released Hickory Grove’s album “At the Mill”. The album received excellent reviews in the Times Community Paper Jan 1994; Northern Virginia Rhythm, April 1994; Bluegrass Unlimited, July 1995; Sing Out, May/June/July 1995; Dirty Linen, August 1995. Through the 1990s Hickory Grove played an array of regional venues ranging from Downs Park, MD to Waterford, VA including town festivals, county parks, and the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. After the turn of the Millennium, Hickory Grove slowed their public performance pace as Jack and Bev both went back to school and continued playing music in other settings.
In 2013 we reactivated Hickory Grove with new energy and performances at the Swift Run Lodge Celtic House, Jammin’ Java, and other venues.
