New High Country Boys here Friday

The New High Country Boys will be performing at the Farmington Community Center Friday, Aug. 21.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and music starts at 7. A concession stand will be open. Admission is $6.

The High Country Boys was formed in the 1970s with Roy McMillian and traditional bluegrass music. Jeff Michael and Brandon Bowles kept the name alive with the new band in 2014, and with Bowles’ passing, Michael is trying to keep the band busy in their memory.

Michael remains a member, and is a multi-instrumentalist as well as the lead fiddle player and vocalist.

Tom Isenhour, an another original member, plays mandolin. Tom Hyatt, banjo player, is the son of fiddlin’ Joe Hyat. Dee Eller plays bass. Winford “The Silver Fox” Hunt plays guitar and sings lead and harmony. Guest appearances by William Poe on lead vocals and guitar can be enjoyed.

Farmington Community Center volunteers will have the hamburgers and hotdogs ready at 6 p.m.
