The series begins Monday, June 12 at 7 p.m. with father/daughter duo, Chris and Megan McGarry in the Coolidge Theatre in the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. They combine the rich sounds of fiddle, clawhammer banjo, guitar, mandolin, and voice to perform a fun and engaging blend of traditional music, old-time tunes, bluegrass standards, and original songs. At 21, Megan is a recording artist, singer-songwriter and senior at Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Tuesday, June 13 at 7 p.m. Drowsy Maggie will perform a mix of styles and genres in the Coolidge Theatre, including Celtic, old-time and bluegrass instrumentals, a variety of songs by Nanci Griffith, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Alison Krause, and Eva Cassidy and bluegrass standards, such as “Handsome Molly,” “Kentucky Waltz” and “Whiskey Before Breakfast.” Lead vocalist Danny Shipe plays guitar and banjo; Carl Conn, fiddle, flute and whistles; Bruce Smith, bass; Daria Lin-Guelig, hammered dulcimer and concertina; and vocalist Molly Cary, percussion.

Immediately following the Pennsylvania Laurel Queen's Preview at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 16 on the outdoor stage at the Deane Center will be a dynamic, feel good, fire breathing electric blues and R&B concert by lead vocalist Gabe Stillman and the Billtown Giants. This trio’s sound is rooted in American blues with influences of soul, R&B, funk, and New Orleans jazz. With Stillman on guitar, Joel Vincent on drums and Colin Beatty on bass, the trio will play new originals and cover tunes, such as "Congo Square" by Sonny Landreth, "Sweet Little Angel" by B.B. King, "All Your Love" by Magic Sam, and "I Get Evil" by Albert King. The rain location is the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre.
