There’s a new way to celebrate the season with foot-stompin’ bluegrass music and rib-stickin’ bbq on Saturday, December 8 at the Holiday Ho Ho Hoedown hosted by Visit Freeport at the Freeport Harraseeket Grange Hall.

Opening the party will be the The Kevin Midgley Players with their southern rural acoustic blues featuring guitars, mandolin, harmonica and vocals.

Erica Brown & the Bluegrass Connection headline the event. Brown started playing the fiddle at the age of six and has been performing since the age of nine, traveling throughout New England, Canada and Louisiana. She has won numerous fiddle contests in New England as well as Canada. Erica was the recipient of a Maine Arts Commission Traditional Arts Apprenticeship in 2006 and is now recognized as a Master of Traditional Fiddling by the Maine Arts Commission. Her band, The Bluegrass Connection, includes Matt Shipman on guitar, Steve Roy on mandolin, Read McNamara on banjo and Ken Taylor on bass. The band continues to record and tour extensively including gigs as the opening acts for Grammy award winners Dwight Yoakam and Ricky Skaggs.

The music partners up with a bodacious barbeque menu from Gritty McDuff’s including BBQ Ribs, Pulled Pork, Mack & Cheese, Ale Battered Onion Rings, Southern Mango Cole Slaw, Bacon Brussel Sprout Salad, corn bread and assorted cookies. Lip-smackin’ vittles are included in the ticket price and a cash bar featuring libations also from Gritty McDuff’s will be available.
