Bluegrass, cobbler coming to Reunion Grounds

A free afternoon of live bluegrass music is on tap for March 29 at the Confederate Reunion Grounds State Historic Site.
The schedule for the day includes performances by The Bluegrass Solution, a Houston-based bluegrass band, playing hard driving traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music beneath the park's historic 1893 dance pavilion.
There will also be a special guest appearance by Karl Shiflett, nationally acclaimed bandleader of The Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show. The music show, which is free, takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 29.
“The event is part of the ‘Camp Coffee, Cobbler & Jam’ music series that features 19th century through early-20th century music events celebrating the different genres of music and campfire cooking historically related to the Confederate Reunion Grounds,” said Dixie Hoover, site manager.
