FAIR HAVEN — Snake Mountain Bluegrass will be taking center stage in the gazebo on the green in the Fair Haven Park on Thursday, July 31. The concert begins at 7 p.m. and is the seventh in the Fair Haven Concerts in the Park summer series. Bring your lawn chair for an evening of musical entertainment for the whole family.

Middlebury College teacher, Gregg Humphrey, and Middlebury construction company owner, Mike Connor, formed Snake Mountain Bluegrass about twenty-five years ago. At the time, both Gregg (guitar and vocals) and Mike (banjo and vocals) were living near Snake Mountain in Weybridge, Vermont, and someone asked them what style of bluegrass they played. “Snake Mountain Bluegrass,” was their immediate response and the name has been theirs ever since.  They are joined in the band by Earle Provin (mandolin and resophonic guitar), Randy Kirby (bass), and Chris Prickett (fiddle).

The Connor Sisters are Katie, guitar, Monica, fiddle, and Meaghan, mandolin. They have been singing together for years and throughout their homeschooling. Their “sister harmonies” are tight and effervescent.

Concert-goers will be treated to free ice cream cones. Each concert also features a door prize drawing with items donated by local businesses.
