2019 Summer Concert Schedule
June 12 - The Scharff Brothers
The Scharff Brothers have been around the block. They got lost, asked for directions, got back in the van, got lost again, showed up late for the show, in the snow, up hill both ways… and still somehow seem to have way more fun than any non-famous, non-rich people should be allowed to have. That is a Scharff Brothers show. No matter what song they play it sounds as if it were written by the Brothers. Their harmonies and execution are seamless and effortless.
