St. Mary’s College of Maryland to Host American Roots Concerts

June 8, 2012
Press Release #12-068


St. Mary’s College of Maryland will celebrate America’s musical roots with two concerts this summer. On June 30, the rhythm and blues group “Nothin’ But Trouble” will perform at 7 p.m. On July 11, “Sabor Trio,” a Latin jazz group, will perform at 7 p.m. Both concerts will take place on the patio of the Campus Center at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

Nothin’ But Trouble is a rhythm and blues group that plays throughout the mid-Atlantic region. The “rousing, hard-swinging” band includes guitarists Chris McAfee and Greg Haughey, Joe Fulkerson on bass, and drummer Bill Meyers, who came together in 2007 with a variety of backgrounds as blues artists. In 2008, Nothin’ But Trouble won the Baltimore Blues Society’s “Battle of the Bands” and represented Maryland in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. Since then, the band has been praised for their strong, confident sound and an obvious enthusiasm for their work, which have made them a popular asset to the bar and blues club scene.

Sabor Trio is a Latin jazz and salsa group from Charlottesville, Virginia. Peter Richardson is the guitarist, Darrell Muller plays bass, and Brian Caputo rounds out the trio on drums. Hear a sample of their music at this link:

Audience members are encouraged to bring their own blankets, chairs, and refreshments. This concert is free, with free parking. A suggested donation of $5 will ensure that concerts like this one continue to take place at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
