Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out appeared at Royal Oak Shrine High School on Friday, January 21st.
Since Oakland Community College withdrew support for live performances, the Bluegrass Series there was discontinued as of last May.
Through the efforts of several individuals, including Tom Laing, the Royal Oak Bluegrass Series has been created. Although no further bookings have been made, it was announced that organizers hope to have a series of four concerts throughout the year.
Mr. Van Rohr was the MC.
IIIrd Tyme Out
It was a great evening, and wonderful to see so a good crowd; since it was a cold night.
You may see the rest of our photos in the gallery.

On Friday, Bill Emerson and Sweet Dixie, the Primitive Quartet, IIIrd Tyme Out, the Grascals and Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers appeared.

A special treat was seeing Dale Vanderpool appear with Don Rigsby. Dale is still battling cancer, but felt well enough to enjoy the festival and sit in for a few songs. It was wonderful to see Dale and his wife, and visit for a few minutes.
Dr. Ralph Stanley
