“Seagrass” shares their love of Bluegrass with OBX

By on August 7, 2019

“Seagrass” is a local bluegrass band that brings its own style of instrumentals and vocals to traditional and contemporary bluegrass, as well as to country and gospel music.  Besides sharing in vocals, the band members play the following instruments –  Amy Denson, guitar; Felicia Byrum, mandolin; Sue Waters, Fiddle; Don Sowder, upright bass.  In addition, Kevin Stroud on banjo and Sammy Marriner on both guitar and vocals fill out the team as scheduling permits.

All members have different musical roots but share a love of bluegrass.  Amy is Youth and Young Adult Pastor at Duck United Methodist Church where she helps lead worship with the adult and youth praise bands.  Felicia is an experienced music teacher in the Dare County school system.  Sue is also a public school music teacher as well as a professional solo violist/violinist who has played extensively in various venues here in the Outer Banks and previously in other states.  Don, who has retired from the U.S. Army and the pharmaceutical industry, played and sang with “Sleepy Hollow” in Richmond, VA, including at regional bluegrass festivals and for a CD recording.  Both Kevin and Sammy are well known musicians in OBX through their participation at numerous musical venues in this area and beyond.  Together, this group brings the unique sound of “Seagrass,” which you can experience live in the Duck United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, August 13, at 7:30pm.  Admission is free; donations accepted.
