Published 10:50 pm Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Those who are familiar with Prescott’s Still will flock to the “Thursday Night at The Studio” event Thursday night. Those who aren’t familiar with the popular bluegrass band will want to join them or miss a great night of music, fellowship and fun.

“We’ve had a great response to the announcement that Prescott’s Still would be the featured entertainment for the last ‘Thursday Night at The Studio’ event before our summer break,” said Morgan Drinkard, Johnson Center for the Arts interim director. “Prescott’s Still is a group of outstanding musicians who play a different kind of bluegrass. It’s bluegrass for everyone.”

Drinkard said Prescott’s Still plays “Americana” style bluegrass.

“Maybe more Americana than the old time bluegrass,” she said. “We wanted to close out our ‘Thursday Nights in The Studio’ with bluegrass music as a lead in or introduction to our ‘String Notes Brush Strokes’ exhibition at the Johnson Center in June. The featured artist will be Margo Russell, who paints bluegrass pickers and mainly pickers at Rex Locklar’s Bluegrass Festival at Henderson.

“There’s a lot of interest in bluegrass and old-time music in our area so we wanted to highlight our ‘roots’ music through art and, who better than Margo Russell. She gets the energy for her paintings through bluegrass music.”

Those who attend “Thursday Night at The Studio” will be energized by the music of Prescott’s Still and a good time is almost a money back guarantee.

Doors to The Studio will open at 6 p.m. Thursday and the music will begin at 7 p.m.

Admission is $12.50 for individuals, $25 for couples and a table for eight may be reserved for $100.

“Thursday Nights” are indoor tailgate parties where folks either pack a picnic or order their favorite brown bag foods and drinks from a local eatery and join the fun.

“This will be the last ‘Thursday Night at The Studio’ until September and we invite everyone to come and enjoy a night of bluegrass music and the fellowship of friends and neighbors,” Drinkard said.
