Friday Night Bluegrass is a reoccurring program of the Sunset Theatre that presents local as well as regional bluegrass talent on the third Friday of the month. This month's concert will feature the Hatley Family Band. From Stanfield, NC, the Hatley Family Band represents five generations of music.
The group is known for their four-part harmony and specializes in bluegrass gospel, but also offers toe-tapping instrumentals and familiar bluegrass standards. The band has appeared across the southeast from West Virginia to Mississippi. This year, the Hatleys celebrate 42 years performing together. The band consists of Ervin Hatley on fiddle, Gary Hatley on guitar, Ronnie Hatley on banjo, Donnie Hatley on mandolin, Teresa Hatley on bass, and Sandy Hatley on dobro.
