I wanted to get back to the Boyce Arboretum after going there for the first time with my parents a couple of weeks before so I could take some time to get quality pictures, and hike the upper trail.
Then I found out that with the ten dollar admission price, a bluegrass concert by a couple of local musicians would be playing that day.
Billy Parker and Ron Rutowski played to a relatively small crowd under the shade of some of the Boyce’s magnificent trees. Their laid back style was infectious, their melodies perfect for an April day.
I sat on a small rock wall, laid back against a tree, and took in the sounds of bluegrass. My personal favorite was a cover of “Summertime”, as requested by the wife of one of the banjo players.
Give it a listen.
