Country, folk and bluegrass bands headline the Sunday Morning Coming Down Picnic Jam

April 6, 2013

SEL - sundaySunday, April 7 – The Sunday Morning Coming Down Picnic Jam
10 a.m.-8 p.m.
Mennello Museum of American Art
900 E. Princeton St.

We love the vintage country sets curated on Sunday Morning Coming Down, the defunct Real Radio show that eased slow starters back into the world of the living, smooth as satin sheets, and it seems we’re in for a special treat where that vibe will come back to life in Loch Haven Park. In the lovely setting of the Mennello, a Red Sovine-tinged teddy bear picnic jam is planned with a lineup as long as your arm of the area’s best country, folk and bluegrass bands covering country legends and doing originals. It’ll be a full day of outdoor family fun in the name of charity (Heartstrings Music), with kids’ activities, a karaoke dunk tank, a dog parade and picnic fixings provided by area food trucks. Everyone’s invited, even your dog, so why not be neighborly and join in the good-natured goings-on, cuz “there’s nothing short of dying” that would keep us from coming down. – Ashley Belanger

    Would love to go, even participate with my own country, folk and bluegrass original compositions both on guitar and 5-string banjo (plus harmonicas). Yet I know exactly what’s going to happen at one of these wonderful hoedowns when a group of religious zealots and/or left-wing Dixie Chicks tree huggers who think they’re being cool, hip, and ‘progressive’ start putting down our nation’s military men and women into a mic and PA system. So stow your Sundy Morning Coming Down limited only to Kris Kristofferson’s helicopter flights and to hell with the rest of us until you people learn how to socially behave in mixed company!

    Poor Carlo Rossi. You sound like my 6 year old daughter. I’m sure your whining won’t be missed at this kick ass event.
