Ivy Terrace Concert – Richard Hefner & Friends
July 29, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Richard Hefner started picking banjo in 1967 and the next year formed one of West Virginia’s longest-running bluegrass bands, Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys. The group first organized in 1968 and took their name from Black Mountain in their native Pocahontas County. Hefner remains as the lone original member.
Richard Hefner picks the banjo in the style of Don Reno, Ralph Stanley, and Earl Scruggs and is able to sing and back himself up at the same time. Fiddler Blaine Sprouse, guitarist Dave Bing, and other local musicians will join him for the Ivy Terrace concert.
Ivy Terrace concerts are a community favorite and a big reason why Lewisburg, West Virginia, is considered one of the “coolest small towns in America.” The groups perform outside on Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace as attendees watch from the expansive lawn in front of New River Community and Technical College. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and pack a picnic to enjoy the live, outdoor concerts. All-Ivy Terrace concerts are free, open to the public, and alcohol-free.
