Flat-picker Larry Keen coming to town
The Spur will offer an evening for bluegrass fans this Monday, Feb. 27. That night, flat-picking guitar-player Larry Keel will visit the Main Street bar for a show, bringing his four-piece band, Natural Bridge.
Natural Bridge features bass fiddler and Larry’s fiancée, Jenny Keel; Mandolin-man Mark Schimick and 5-string banjo-player Andy Thorn. Playing with a traditional bluegrass sound that minds the tradition of the Stanley Brothers, Flat and Scruggs and Bill Monroe, while at the same creating new American mountain music, Keel and his band bring an old-time bluegrass style in a new package.
The group will start at 9 p.m. and tickets are $7. For more information, visit http://www.parkcitylivemusic.com or call 615-1618.

Tourism revenue increased month over month this summer, the Park City Chamber/Bureau reported, but lodging numbers are still off 22% for December. Officials reported a recent uptick in bookings, though, pointing to a modicum of certainty after ski resorts announced their COVID-related opening policies.
