Spatial Effects will be performing at the Birchwood Family Opry in Birchwood on Friday at 7 p.m.
The band is composed of Earl Brackin (mandolin and vocals), Tom Brown (banjo and harmonica), David Crawford (guitar and vocals), Gary Thompson (dobro, fiddle, and vocals) all from the North Georgia area, and Betsy Blankenship (bass and vocals) of Apison.
The recipe for their brand of bluegrass music includes several degrees in music, creativity, and a sometimes off the wall sense of humor. The band has performed at a variety of venues and festivals in the Southeast and has opened for Mountain Heart, Claire Lynch, Goose Creek Symphony, and the Lovell Sisters.
The Birchwood Family Opry is at 5260 Highway 60 Birchwood. For more information call 284-2452. For more information on Spatial Effects visit http://spatialeffectsbluegrass.com.
