WHEELING — Cabin Fever String Band brings its traditional folk and bluegrass music at 7 p.m. July 21 to the Anne Kuchinka Amphitheater at Oglebay Resort in Wheeling.  The concert is presented by the Elizabeth Stifel Kline Foundation. Admission is free.

Formed in 1986, Cabin Fever String Band has taken its distinctive blend of old-time country, gospel, and bluegrass music to audiences throughout the tri-state region and has performed in a variety of settings including square dances, festivals, fairs, coffeehouses, churches and concerts.

The band's electric mix of styles all played and sung with an undeniable respect for the traditions from which the music came has become a hallmark of the group. In a review of their first recording in Bluegrass Unlimited, David J. McCarty praised the band for "presenting the music in its original unvarnished state."

Cabin Fever String Band performances are accented by twin fiddle arrangements, strong three part vocal harmonies and the demonstration of clogging by fiddler, Scott Black.

The group, consisting of Scott Black, on fiddle, vocals and dance, Richard Pollack, on claw hammer banjo, fiddle, bass, and vocals, Matt Hines, on acoustic string bass and banjo, Jim Simpson, on mandolin and vocals and Bob Heyer on guitar and vocals.

 The summer entertainment series will continue with National Pike Pickers on July 28 and Aug. 4 with Roger Hoard and Dan Jones. In the event of rain, the performances will be moved to an indoor facility at Oglebay.

For information on all the concerts, please call Oglebay at 304-243-4010.
