Each summer, residents and visitors alike have the opportunity to attend free Music in the Park concerts held on most Friday evenings at Soldiers and Sailors park, located along the banks of the Allegheny River, in the heart of downtown Warren. This year’s Music in the Park program began on June 7 and ends on September 6. Music genres includes rock, country, bluegrass, and jazz. Bob and I attended this past Friday night’s Border Ride concert.
Members of the band are: Cathy Pearson (fiddle), Scott Pearson (mandolin and fiddle), Jimmy Metz (banjo, Dobro and vocals), Darla Evans (bass and vocals), and Nelson Boosel (guitar and vocals).
Border Ride is a bluegrass band. We enjoyed very much listening to the 2-hour concert. Each band member performs passionately. In addition to the music, we enjoyed the dynamics of the band. Border Ride has fun, while performing.
Scott and Cathy Pearson are not the only musical members of their family. We enjoyed performances by their son.
Here is a short video clip that I created from three video captures. The video will give you some idea of Border Ride’s impressive musical talent.
