Another outstanding lineup of talented regional bands will be appearing on this month’s show. Headlining the show will be the return of the outstanding Hardinsburg band, Into the Blue, who will be making their first appearance of the season at the Grayson County Bluegrass Opry. This four-member Breckinridge County group features banjo player and vocalist Ken Williams along with his wife, Ruthie, who plays bass. Another family connection with the Into the Blue band involves guitar player and vocalist Brian Stevenson and his son, Grant, who performs on the mandolin and also assists with the vocals. Into the Blue performs a variety of traditional and contemporary bluegrass songs as well as numerous gospel music selections.
Other bands appearing on this month’s local Opry show will include the McDonald Road Band of Leitchfield, who are immensely popular for their toe-tapping bluegrass and gospel quartet arrangements. The Porter Ridge Band of Radcliff and the Opry’s host band, Hickory Grove, will also be playing on stage.
