The band includes Jane Bernier on guitar, Rich Bernier on dobro, Mike Conant on fiddle, Jason Wescott on guitar/banjo and Jake McCarthy on bass.

In 2007, Richard, his wife, and brother Don put The Nitpickers together with Rick Dale and Woody Woods. They played all over the state and competed in the band contest at the Podunk Bluegrass Festival. The band was very successful but came to an end in 2011. That’s when Back Woods Road was formed – a 3-piece high energy acoustic bluegrass band that played a lot in a two year span.

Other concerts in the series include the Laura Hudson Project set for July 11, Working Class on Aug. 8, Chris Poulson and the Social Club Sept. 12, and The Jeff Tones on Oct. 10.

Concerts are free to the public and food trucks will be on site.
