Bluegrass band Stumble Creek Station is Howard Bard,
five-string banjo and vocals; Doug Conroy, acoustic upright
bass and vocals; and Austin Kennedy, guitar and vocals;
and Andy Karpay, violins and vocals.

It was all fast-pickin', good eatin' and thirst-quenching Saturday at the inaugural Barbecue, Beer & Bluegrass Festival on Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach. Bluegrass band Stumble Creek Station provided great tunes ranging from traditional classics to the Grateful Dead, while the barbecue was hot and delicious and the beer was cold and crafty. All in all, not a bad way to spend an Island Saturday night.
