Gabriel has been playing acoustic music for 10 years. He grew up in a house that was always full of music being played by family and friends. His mother Carol and he have teamed up to play a wide variety of music including folk, current and classic country and bluegrass which Carol “cut her teeth on”. Gabriel plays a mixture of singer/songwriter and bluegrass using flatpick and fingerstyle techniques. Carol spent her formative years singing bluegrass with her family and later teamed up with her cousins to travel and sing a wide variety of popular music professionally. Carol is a hilarious entertainer as well as a musician.
Mike Terry, Jim and “Mo” Simpson are a trio called “Blue Room Unplugged”. These guys are seasoned musicians playing a mix of acoustic light rock, classic country and bluegrass, and as friends of Carol’s who have fun sharing their music, guarantee a great afternoon with their pals.

Social distancing will be observed in the barn as tickets purchased together will be seated together. Masks are required for entry and when moving away from your group’s assigned area.
