The McDonald Road Band of Leitchfield will be performing at the upcoming Saturday, Jan. 16 show of the Grayson County Bluegrass Opry.

The local bluegrass show is held on the third Saturday night of each month in the Old Judicial Building (third floor) at 125 East White Oak St. in Leitchfield behind the Shell Station. Guests are reminded to use the rear entrance of the building.

Showtime is 6:00 p.m., and admission is free.

McDonald Road is a six-member band that performs bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music. This popular local group especially appeals to audiences because of their outstanding four-part harmonies on gospel songs. The Grayson County band includes Roger Dermitt (guitar and vocals); Leon Davis (mandolin and vocals); Bryan England (dobro and vocals); Cary Sego (guitar and vocals); Danny Woosley (banjo); and Larry Shepherd (bass). In addition, 11-year-old Alex Hazelwood, who is the talented grandson of Leon Davis, always makes a guest appearance on the stage with the group to sing a song and play a tune on his fiddle.

Several other groups will also be appearing on the Opry show this month including the Higher Ground Band, of Bowling Green, and the Justamere Bluegrass Band which features band members from both Kentucky and Tennessee. In addition, Hickory Grove, of Leitchfield, which is the host band for the Opry show, will be performing.

Make plans to attend the Grayson County Bluegrass Opry on Saturday, Jan. 16.
