The Ocean State Ramblers entertained shoppers at the Weaver Library Farmers Market on Thursday, August 24, 2017. On this lovely summer evening, we played a mix of bluegrass standards and original songs.
Kids grabbed toy instruments and joined in the fun, while grown-ups listened while sitting in lawn chairs.
Here’s a little taste:
And, we were featured in the local East Providence newspaper beforehand:
The Ocean State Ramblers returned to the Attleboro Farmers Market on Saturday, July 8, 2017. It was a hot and humid, but beautiful day at the market and there was a good turnout of customers.
We played a mix of bluegrass covers, original songs, and kid-friendly songs that got the kiddos singing, dancing and shaking toy tambourines and maracas.
We also introduced our new original Happy Birthday song, which we sang to a couple of little tikes who had a birthday coming up that week.
We’re looking forward to playing this market again sometime in the near future.
The Ocean State Ramblers provided the soundtrack for a festive opening day at the Attleboro Farmers Market on Saturday, June 17th. According to the market manager, the 2017 opening drew a record crowd of 9,000 customers who patronized the local farmers and other vendors selling at the market.
We played a variety of bluegrass standards, took a few requests and let some of the little ones join us in making music with toy shakers and tambourines. We had just as much fun as the kids and market goers.
