The Oriskany Strings gave a benefit performance for residents
at the Warm Hearth Village, Kroontje Health Care Center
in Blacksburg, VA on October 7, 2004 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm.
Frazier Parr, a resident at Warm Hearth, invited the band
to come and play. Frazier is a long-time friend of Carol
Lewis, and in his youth used to work on Carol's family farm.
The Strings played a mixture of gospel, old-time and bluegrass
songs, such as Keep on the Sunny Side, Old Cold Tater, and
Where the Soul Never Dies. The residents sang along to many
of the old favorites. The band was invited back to perform
at the upcoming Fall Festival at Warm Hearth on November
19, 2004 between 2:30 to 5:00 pm.
