Ragged Mt. Band to Offer
August 2 'Zoom Concert
In place of the Andover-based summer events (July 4 Celebration, Old Time Fair) canceled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Andover Historical Society will present a free concert by Lindsey Schust and the Ragged Mt. Band, a local group that performs original material and a mixture of traditional Americana, folk, country western, bluegrass and folk rock plus special guests
To begin at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 2, the concert will be delivered "live" via the internet to local homes via an easy-to-use technology called Zoom. There it can be viewed on home computers and hand-held devices. Up to 100 households can reserve a "seat" in advance by sending an email request to Treasurer@AndoverHistory.org.
Now in its tenth year, the Ragged Mt. Band includes, besides Lindsey Schust on keyboards, other members of the Schust family (Grace, Jim and Jesse) plus occasional friends. Their signature song "Hippie Hill" can be heard on the group's website https://lindseyschustraggedmtband.com/
