(Centennial, CO) – If you are a bluegrass fan you’ll want to mark your calendar for Friday, February 16, when local bluegrass trio The Hummin’Birds performs in Centennial for The Music with a Mission Concert Series. The concert is free to the community, and a “love offering” will be collected with all funds going to Heifer International, which focuses on ending world hunger and poverty. The concert begins at 7 pm at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 8545 E. Dry Creek Rd. in Centennial.
The Hummin’Birds draw their inspiration from early masters in American music styles, including Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, the Stanley Brothers, the Louvin Brothers, Bob Wills, Doc Watson, Cindy Walker, Les Paul & Mary Ford… and the list goes on! They deliver an easygoing performance, mixing old time Appalachian tunes with country, bluegrass, gospel, swing and original songs. Their clean vocal harmonies and playful instrumentation have delighted audiences over many years. Founding members Cami (acoustic guitar) and Mike (Banjo and Mandolin) will be joined by their daughter Claire on the fiddle for this enjoyable evening.
Heifer International was founded nearly 70 years ago and is well known for their “teach a man to fish” philosophy to end world hunger. Donations are used to purchase farm animals or fund projects that help families become resilient and obtain sustainable income. This in turn builds up the community.
The Music with a Mission Concert Series is in its third season, and has raised to date over $24,000 for both local, national and international mission organizations.
