Friday, September 21, 710 p.m. - Come and hear this wonderful string band play historical music...Steve Cox, Ernie Williams, Bill Reynolds and Wayne Sweat are back by popular demand!
About the group:
"Chipco Creek refers to an old grist mill that was on a small creek in the Chipco area of eastern Pasco County. The wooden mill vanished years ago. There was old grist stone in the creek north of Saint Joe. It was the only reminder of this bygone era. 

Old Time music is a homogenization of tunes and ballads from Ireland, Scotland and England, using fiddles from Europe, banjos from Africa, and guitars from Spain. It is the music the early American settlers living in Appalachia played on their front porches and for their Saturday night dances. As America grew so did the music. As folks moved west new playing styles emerged identified with fiddlers from the mid-west, Missouri, and Texas. Then in the 1930’s a group of musicians put a new spin on the music, today that is called Bluegrass. The Chipco Creek String Band honors those early settlers of America, trying to keep the music close to those original roots.

The Chipco Creek String Band is made up of four musicians that have been playing Old Time Music for many years. The band consist of Bill Reynolds fiddle, Ernie Williams 5 string banjo, Wayne Sweat and Steve Cox guitar." 

Guests are welcome!

LOCATION: The museum is located 1.3 miles north of downtown Dade City, at the corner of US 301 and Museum Road, turn east onto Museum Road and cross the railroad tracks.
