Monroe Doctrine will be bringing its music to the “Drive-In Music" performance starting at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, July 1, in the Hannah Field parking lot at Valley City High School. The parking lot located across from Sheyenne Care Center. Enjoy the music from the comfort and safety of your car. This is the "Music at the City Park Bandshell" program that has been adapted due to COVID-19.
The Monroe Doctrine bluegrass band is the house bluegrass band at the Vault Coffee Shop and Arts Center in Valley City. The opportunity to play high-level bluegrass music draws the group together every other Thursday evening. They are veterans of bluegrass bands in North Dakota, Minnesota and Maryland. The crew draws heavily upon the classic bluegrass sounds of the first- and second-generation musicians mixed with music from contemporary bluegrass and Americana artists. In this family-friendly concert, expect hot fiddle tunes, slow waltzes, songs about the old home place, gospel classics and original tunes and songs.
Music at the City Park Bandshell is sponsored by the Valley City Parks & Recreation District, Bridges Arts Council, KOVC, Myron Sommerfeld, North Dakota Council on the Arts & Valley City Convention & Visitors Bureau. A freewill offering is taken to support the continued work on the bandshell. Those attending should bring a lawn chair if they choose to sit outside.
