The concert will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 15 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Saltonstall Park, next to Town Hall, 149 Main St., Watertown.
According to the band’s website, The Sandy Ridge Boys with Sofia Chiarandini, play traditional, straight-ahead bluegrass, along with interesting twists on some familiar old favorites. With the standard assemblage of instruments, featuring banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and bass, they recreate the sounds of Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and even Chuck Berry, as well as many of the contemporary bluegrass bands playing today. See more on the band’s website.
