Mason District Park Features Bluegrass Performance
On Friday, August 17, 2012 from 7:30–8:30 p.m. join in the excitement of the Spotlight by Starlight Concert Series featuring Wayne Taylor and Appaloosa. This bluegrass performance is free and will be held in the Mason District Park Amphitheater located in the park at 6621 Columbia Pike in Annandale.
With his earliest recollection of music occurring at the American Legion where his father used to take him to hear music on the weekends, it seems that Wayne Taylor’s life in music has simply fallen into place over the years. At the mere age of nine there is no way Taylor could have known what lay in store for him when he learned his first guitar chords at the Legion Hall from a guitarist named Clyde Costner.
Now 50 years later, and having served almost 25 years in the Navy, where he served as guitarist and lead singer with the Navy bluegrass band Country Current, he is just beginning a new chapter in his life’s story.
With the release of their third album and a holiday release planned for this year as well, Wayne Taylor and Appaloosa are doing quite well for themselves. As a matter of fact, they plan to begin recording again and will be making their third tour of Europe this summer where they are scheduled to perform in Norway and Holland, and will complete the 13-day tour with several performances at the Guildtown Bluegrass Festival in Scotland.
Concerts are held outdoors so bring a picnic, blankets and lawn chairs.
