McLain Family Band performing

The event scheduled for Sunday, March 15, 2020 has been postponed until October.  Please check back for updates.

FREE to all area students
$10 Community Admission

For many decades, the enthusiastic outstanding McLain family band has been performing and spreading the wonderful traditions of bluegrass and Appalachian folk music. Founded by their father Raymond K. McLain, the family group has made 14 international tours under the sponsorship of the US State Department. In addition to concerts at the Grand Ole Opry, they also played with symphony orchestras featuring works with McLain themes. They have also appeared at Carnegie Hall and at the Lincoln Center. Raymond W. McLain leads the band today and is most likely the best-known outside of the family band. He is an excellent fiddler and banjoist and has built a long career that includes working with Jim and Jesse's Virginia Boys and harmonica player Mike Stevens.
