TUNKHANNOCK — The bluegrass band Hickory Project will return to the Dietrich Theater stage for a performance at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28. Admission is by donation and all are welcome.
Some may remember Hickory Project was one of the headlined performers at Tunkhannock’s River Day. Many enjoyed them at the Riverside Park pavilion in the outdoor setting and at the Dietrich Theater in concert the last two years. The Dietrich is able to host the Aug. 28 concert because Hickory Project will be in town for its Cornstock Folk Festival at Lazybrook Park in from Sept. 2-4.
Anthony Hannigan, concert organizer, is the 1999 National Mandolin Champion, but he also plays the guitar, banjo, fiddle, and sings. He has been involved with music from the age of four and has recorded and performed with major artists. His influences range from Bill Monroe, Charlie Parker, Van Halen, Monk, to Vassar Clements.
Hannigan will be joined by Steve Belcher on bass, Ed Lick on banjo, Josh Sudigala on guitar, and Jillian Hannigan on flute.
The band has produced seven CDs and one DVD, which will be available for purchase at the concert.
Tickets can be reserved by calling the Dietrich Theater at 570-996-1500. Donations will be accepted at the door. Tickets are also available at the ticket booth and will be available at the door as long as they last.
