Two favorite pastimes of Greenwood area residents – eating BBQ and playing golf - will be combined into one weekend to benefit The Museum and Railroad Historical Center. Come down to the Railroad Historical Center on Friday, September 27, at 6:00 pm, for a BBQ Bash featuring entertainment by the incomparable THREE ON A STRING from Birmingham, Alabama. Stumps BBQ is catering the event, and Howards on Main is providing a cash bar. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the music and comedy of Jerry Ryan, Bobby Horton, Brad Ryan, and Andy Meginnis of Three on a String.
Tickets are $50 and are available at The Museum or by calling 864-229-7093.
The Railroad Museum Golf Classic will be on Saturday, September 28, at The Links at Stoney Point. Shotgun starts are at 8:30 am and 1:30 pm for the 2-man’s captain’s choice format. A light lunch will be served between 12:00 and 1:30. The tournament fee is $75 per golfer, and participating golfers receive a $10 discount on their ticket to Friday’s BBQ Bash.
Registration forms are available at The Museum or at www.greenwoodmuseum.org.
Three on a String has been in the entertainment business for over 45 years – a remarkable feat in today’s fast-changing society. Jerry and Bobby performed as a duet for one show at Horse Pens 4- Bluegrass Festival near Steel, Alabama.
George Pruitt, a big band music veteran, suggested they add a bass, and, thus, Three on a String was born. Brad Ryan was just six hears old when the adventure began in 1971. Fourteen years later, he became the bass player and continues to play bass and fiddle. Andy Meginnis was a long-time bass player with the group, and he has returned to performing with them on a regular basis.
Jerry says, “When people ask, ‘What is it you do?,’ for years we did not know what to say. Then we stopped and looked at our own show and decided: We have fun. We play many styles of music from Big Band to Country to Classical, and even a little Bluegrass. But mainly, we have fun!”
