Sheppard Brothers to perform at Parkersburg City Park

PARKERSBURG — The Artsbridge Summer Music in the Park concert series will feature The Sheppard Brothers at 7 p.m. today at the bandshell in Parkersburg City Park.

The Sheppard Brothers are a bluegrass band based in Parkersburg. Although the band has been together 36 years, it has undergone few member changes. The three brothers, Terry, Mike and Butch Sheppard, have the rich, tight vocals associated with a family band, Artsbridge said. They also sing a cappella gospel songs.

Other band members are Shirley Sheppard and Heamon “Tib” Hart. In case of rain, the free concert will be relocated to the horseshoe pit shelter.

The Summer Music series is hosted by Artsbridge and today’s performance is sponsored by DeBarr Trucking. Donations will be accepted for Arts Education programming in the local schools. Liberty Street Church of God will provide free ice cream until its supply is gone.
