Oil City ‘s Transit Concert Series Returns on Friday

| September 10, 2019

OIL CITY, Pa. – The Oil City Arts Council is bringing back the Transit Concert series, held in the Great Room of the National Transit Building once monthly throughout the fall, winter, and spring.

The series returns on Friday, September 13, with a performance by Rockin’ Robin. Scheduled performances through the remainder of the calendar year include Acoustic Earle on October 11, Echo Valley on November 8, and Gravel Lick on December 13.

Rockin’ Robin (pictured above) is a musically exciting, entertaining and unusual solo performer delivering styles ranging from Motown to classic rock to country to bluegrass. Robin Grandin performs on the guitar, flute, bass, and mandolin to bring these songs to you and to keep you tapping your toes throughout the evening.

Acoustic Earle features a playlist of both covers and original songs, with influences from Seattle to Nashville. With Richard Atha providing vocals and Jimmi Holmes accompanying on the acoustic guitar, Acoustic Earle promises to defy your acoustic expectations and deliver nonetheless.

Echo Valley has been entertaining people of all ages since 2009 with their variety of bluegrass, gospel, Celtic, and folk styles. With their unique, farm-raised blend of six sisters and one brother, this group impresses with their superb stage presence, musicianship, sibling harmonies and multi-instrument talents.

Gravel Lick consists of members Colette Vickers on bass, Barbi Milliron on fiddle, Cheryl Rennier on guitar and vocals, and Nancy Jeannerat on mandolin and also providing vocals. They each bring a variety of influences to Gravel Lick’s bluegrass sound, with a non-traditional flair.

2020 dates and performers will be announced later this year.

The Transit Concert Series began in 1999 and is entering its 21st year at the National Transit Building. Performances are held in the Transit Great Room beginning at 7:30 pm.

Admission is $8 for Arts Council members, and $10 for non-members.
