Hickory Hill Bluegrass Band will be performing their second annual free concert at Lanes Chapel United Methodist Church , 8720 Old Jacksonville Highway, Tyler on Saturday, July 16 at 6:30 pm., 903-561-5703

Celebrating their 35th anniversary in September, 2014, Hickory Hill has proven to be one of Texas’ most popular and enduring acoustic groups.  The band emerged from Avinger and carved out a history of making folks feel at home with a growing collection of great songs and stories blended with love and humor.

The band includes John Early, Avinger, Tx, guitar; Bob Stegall, Jacksonville, bass; Wes Perry, Lubbock, banjo; Michael Morrison, Mesquite, mandolin and guitar; and Milo Deering, Dallas, on fiddle and most other things with strings.

Their latest CD “The Kings of Texas Folkgrass,” is a name given to them by bluegrass MC Mike Powell.  Mike will also perform his music and Christian comedy Saturday night.

Sunday, July 17 at 10:00 am, Hickory Hill will lead the worship service, and Mike Powell will preach Jesus.

Pumpkin Patch Coming Soon

Is it true???  Can it be???  YES, we are having a pumpkin patch again this year! Because of our success last year we have committed and are having a larger truck load (approx. 1200 pumpkins), delivered on Saturday, October 1st at 12 noon. We will be starting organizational meetings in August for everyone to get involved; dates will be announced soon. 

Lets make our Second Annual Pumpkin Patch bigger and better than the first.
