Image634891084043925736According to the event organizer, Disc Jockey Jay Armsworthy,  Bluegrass For Hospice-2012 brought in $22,959.09 for the cause on the last Saturday in October

Held the Flat Iron Farm in Great Mills, MD, the day was enjoyed by many fans of Bluegrass music and many door prizes given away.  Silent auction items and a 50/50 raffle also helped toward the total funds raised.

The Roys, making their debut in the Southern Maryland area and Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper were both big hits with the crowd and both and put on their usual fascinating performances.    Armsworthy said, “There are so many people to thank that it would be hard to mention everyone without forgetting someone. But for you that had a part in this event, your efforts were greatly appreciated.”

Some of Southern Maryland’s finest Bluegrass bands also performed; David Norris, Wild and Blue, Bubby Abell & Spoon Creek, Charlie Thompson & The Bottom County Bluegrass, Gracie’s Guys and Gals Dance Group.  Jerry Thompson and The Bluegrass Gospel Express went one step beyond their fine performance and generously donated proceeds from their CD sales.

Always the promoter, Armsworthy is already planning next year’s Bluegrass For Hospice-2013  which is set for Saturday October 26, 2013…….Mark your calendars now!
