  Featured BFUU Events

 

 

 S·E·A Folkgrass
Friday, 8/22, 8pm, Fellowship Hall
An acoustic concert with mountain & hammered dulcimer, fiddle, banjo, guitar and 3 great voices in close harmony. S·E·A is comprised of long-time folk musician Steve Eulberg and musical sisters Erin and Amber Rogers. All are award-winning musicians.

Steve met the sisters when they were just beginning to play their instruments. At first, the three met up occasionally at music festivals across the country and made it a point to play some tunes together. As the years went on, they formed an intentional partnership and have been scheduling performances and tours together. S·E·A is united by their love of dulcimers, study of traditional music, and passion for eliciting positive change in their communities through that music.
