Live on Excursions: Sawgrass

 

Dayton-area bluegrass group Sawgrass stops by Excursions for a fun performance and interview in advance of their performance at GearFest 2011.

Sawgrass, which formed in 2005 as an outlet for Springfield singer/songwriter Ryan Judy, is a modern interpretation of the musical stylings of artists such as Hank Williams and Bill Monroe. The group plays high-energy bluegrass music, full of strong harmonies and rich instrumentation.

In this Excursions performance, the group tears through a four-song bluegrass set, which includes the uplifting “Workin’ on a Building.”

A Blue Sky Summer

The question “What did you do this summer?” Is the topic of many a back-to-school essay. Forty area students will answer “I was a Blue Sky artist”. Community Voices producer Susan Byrnes follows the experience of a few of those students who participated in the Blue Sky Project, one of Dayton’s most unique summer arts programs. The results of their participation can be seen at the Blue Sky Project Final Exhibition, on display for Urban Nights, September 16th , at 8 North Main St. in downtown Dayton.
