Event Description:

THE HINSON GIRLS and THE LEGENDARY W.B.T. BRIARHOPPERS

The Hinson Girls are four sisters from Lancaster, SC who won the state championship for top bluegrass band in 2012. The band was started by the girls’ father in 2010 and includes Kristin, 19, harmonies and guitar; Melissa, 16, harmonies and upright bass; Allison, 16, harmonies and banjo; and Katelyn, 14, lead vocals and mandolin.

The W.B.T. Briarhoppers came together in 1934 to fill the bill for WBT radio’s request for a hillbilly band to help promote its products. Celebrating 80 years, the family continues the bluegrass tradition with the band’s latest members: Alana Flowers, Hannah Nicole Flowers, Dillon Flowers, Ellie Flowers, Donnie Little, and Tom Warlick.

The Grand Ole McCelvey concerts start at 6 PM. Tickets are $10 each and will be available at the door or can be purchased in advance at the Museum of York County and the Historical Center of York County. For further information call 803/818.6761.
