The towns premier theatre destination, home to special viewings and productions throughout the year.
Authentic music from the Mississippi Delta to the Kentucky Mountains by some of the finest traditional American roots, bluegrass, ragtime and blues musicians. Tales of illicit stills, street girls, jailhouses, love and jealousy, the Delta Beltas play hokum blues and ragtime as performed by the street musicians and jugbands of America’s Deep South in the 1920s and 1930s.
Those who follow traditional Bluegrass music cannot fault The New Essex Bluegrass Band’s approach to the art.
With some of the most capable musicians around, their respect for its authentic origins and roots produces impeccable arrangements and hair-raising harmonies.
“I love their music as well as admire their dedication. More is never enough.” – Trevor Hyett, Editor of British Bluegrass News.
