INDIAN LAKE -- Indian Lake continued its free summer concert series Friday, Aug. 8, but moved the venue from the parking lot in front of the closed grocery store to the Byron Park Pavilion, where it will remain for the balance of the season.

A large crowd listened to some really good down home music by Washington County Line, which served up straight-ahead traditional bluegrass seasoned with bluegrass interpretations of early country, folk, and contemporary tunes.

The group features the songs of bluegrass giants such as Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, the Stanley Brothers, and Red Allen, as well as folk music icons and singer / songwriters including Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Paxton, Bob Dylan, and Ralph McTell.

The band has been together only five years but has already racked up a strong following. It won the 2011 Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival band competition in Tunbridge, Vt.

Members of Washington County Line include Daryl Smith, banjo and harmony vocals; Ken Meyer, bass; Sean Quinn and Steve Wood, guitars and lead and harmony vocals; and Andy Bing, dobro guitar, mandolin and harmony vocals.

Washington County Line will perform next at the Upper Hudson Bluegrass Festival in North Creek Aug. 14-17.
