Local Events Coming Up in Bath
With the end of the month approaching, I wanted to talk about a few exciting events happening soon at the end of this month and next month in our local area of Bath County.
On June 29th at 7:30 pm, Garth Newel is having a concert called American Made: Scythian (sith-ee-in). According to Ukranian Nomads, scythian is “what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling.”
Adult concert tickets are $25.00, Adult student concert tickets are $10.00, and for people 18 years old or younger, it’s free.
If you’d like to eat before the show, they’re also having a picnic at 6pm. Tickets for both the picnic and concert are $45.00 for adults, $20.00 for ages 13 to 18, and $12.00 for ages 12 and under.
If you can’t make this show, there’s another concert on July 6th at 5pm followed by an optional dinner and another on July 7th at 3pm called Sound Paintings.
