MILANO—A special “bluegrass show” will be featured at the Milano Opry on Saturday, according to Lynn Martin, publicist. The show will start at 7 p.m. in the Milano High cafetorium.

“We will have a total bluegrass show, the Milano Opry House Band will do the first half of the show and Pine Island Station from Houston will do the second half,” Martin said.

The award-winning Pine Island Station is a Houston area bluegrass band that delivers energetic, heartfelt music from a wide variety of sources, including original tunes.

The four-member group includes Milam County resident Brian Meadors, along with Gary Carter, Scott Sylvester and Janine Carter.

“Whether it’s traditional or contemporary, cowboy or folk, swing or gospel, this top-notch acoustic group makes the songs their own, with crowd-pleasing vocal and instrumental arrangements,” Martin said.

“Pine Island Station is a favorite among their peers as well as among their growing audiences. From small rooms to large stages their fans return for the ‘special blend’ harmonies, and the musical versatility,” Martin said.

The group’s second recording, “Call of the Past,” has received airplay both nationally and abroad and was featured in the magazine Bluegrass Unlimited.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. with the show to start at 7 p.m. Hamburgers, BBQ sandwiches and homemade pies will be available.

“Don’t miss this ‘big show in a small town’,” Martin said.
