You can enjoy an afternoon of real rootsy music when the Pinelands Cultural and Historical Society presents a bluegrass festival on Sunday, Feb. 9, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Albert Music Hall, located at 131 Wells Mills Rd. (Route 532) in Waretown. Doors open at 11.

Admission is $10 for adults, and $1 for children younger than 11.

Danielle Rozinski, Albert Hall publicity director, said the program would feature leading regional bluegrass bands. The lineup includes Whippoorwill Bluegrass Band, Lonesome Turnpike Ramblers, Grassland, Church Street Revival and Prograsstination. There will be an intermission at 2:15.

Light refreshments and gift items can be purchased. Proceeds benefit the Albert Hall Scholarship Fund.

“The music will be strictly bluegrass,” said Rozinski. “This is one of our two special Sunday music shows.”

Albert Hall also has regular Saturday night concerts, beginning at 7:30.

“Those concerts offer a mix of country, bluegrass and Pinelands music,” said Rozinski. “But our special Sunday shows are completely devoted to bluegrass.”
