Out of the Blue to perform at the Arbor

Live music featuring the Wheeling-based Out of the Blue will be performed beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday at the “Coffeehouse at The Arbor.'”

Open to the public, the performance involves Kim West and his wife Beverly playing the guitar and banjo, respectively; Joe King, also of Wheeling, bringing his own style to the mandolin, and Debb Daugherty of New Cumberland, “the rock-steady bassist.”

A spokesperson said, “Their smooth harmonies and lively mixture of old and new bluegrass, gospel and some ‘surprises’ always keep their shows engaging and fun.”

There is no cover charge, but donations are accepted.

The event also includes a drawing for a quilt. Sandwiches and other foods and snacks are available for purchase from the Arbor kitchen.

Children are welcome with accompanying adults.

Proceeds from the events benefit the Arbor and its community outreach after-school program. The Arbor Thrift Store recently opened at 114 N. Chester St., New Cumberland, and all proceeds from there also go to feed the children and support the after-school program.

Because of the Christmas holiday, the December event will be held on the second Saturday of the month, which is Dec. 14. The Arbor is located at 208 S. Chester St., just one block south of the traffic light in New Cumberland. There is plenty of free parking.
