04/09/17 When The Boxcars open their instrument cases and take to the stage, a joyful exposition of music performance ensues. The two-time IBMA Bluegrass Instrumental Band of the Year has achieved a level of musicianship that sets a high standard. Merging the power of traditional bluegrass with an updated and engaging style, their CD, Familiar With the Ground, captures these super-pickers': Keith Garrett, Adam Steffey, Ron Stewart, Harold Nixon, and Gary Hultman. Doors open at 6 p.m. and show time is 7 p.m. The series at the park's Visitor Center is sponsored by the Friends of Frying Pan Park, Vienna Hardwoods and Eastman Guitars and Mandolins in cooperation with the Fairfax County Park Authority.
