The Barns of Rose Hill opened its doors last night for the first of what undoubtedly will be many years to come of music, arts and entertainment for the Clarke County community. On Friday night patrons were treated to the First Barns Blues Bash featuring Millwood Blues Week All Stars Danny Knicely, Scott Ainslie, Ralph Gordon, Danny Gotham, and Rob Soper.
Chip Schutte’s annual Millwood Blues Festival, celebrating its 14th consecutive year and drawing some of the best Blues players from around the country, delivered an extraordinary gift of talent for the concert.
Clarke County sends out its sincere and heartfelt thanks to the First Barns Blues Bash pickers and grinners for helping our community make the Barns of Rose Hill grand opening a truly unforgettable event; Danny Gotham of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Robbie Soper, of San Francisco, California, Danny Knicely, from somewhere over the mountain, Ralph Gordon, from Charles Town, West Virginia, and last but hardly least, Scott Ainslie, from Vermont, a true blues singer and picker from the “old school” who’s performance last night surely would have painted a smile on the face of the late Blues great Robert Johnson.
Special thanks to Berryville’s own Michael Hobert for capturing the event in photos.
