LEWISTON – Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys will bring bluegrass to the Fountain Park at noon Thursday, July 19, as part of L/A Arts Music in the Parks 2007.

The concert is free. Fountain Park is in the Bates Mill Complex behind FX Marcotte Furniture Store on Mill Street.

Since the 1970s, Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys have consistently delivered dynamic, original bluegrass music. Lewiston Middle School students and staff will recognize Banjo Dan as one of the Sky Blue Boys, who performed this past May in a concert for them. With countless performances under their belts and an extensive catalog of acclaimed recordings, the Plowboys have developed name recognition, a large fan base and a reputation as top-notch entertainers. Theirs is a reputation built on soulful lead singing, harmonies, fiery picking and a stage show full of energy and humor.
