EASTON — Newly formed bluegrass band Above the Grass performed at the Men’s and Women’s Annual Banquet on Saturday, Aug. 24, hosted by the Easton Church of the Brethren in Easton.
The banquet included members of Brethren congregations from several area churches and has been hosted for decades at various churches on the Eastern Shore.
The name of the group was a collaboration but originated with a member of the group, Susan Drummond, an oncology nurse at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury.
Drummond told the audience a cancer patient informed her one morning that he wished to live the day “above the grass.” This inspirational thought became a celebration of life and an appropriate name for the band, which plays Christian music as well as traditional bluegrass.
