December 2018

Posted by admin on 7th December 2018 in Uncategorized

The summer and fall have gone.  The band had a busy schedule from July to November.  We traveled to Virginia and Pennsylvania during the last week of October and the first week of November and performed 10 concerts in 10 days.  The weather was great and the scenery in VA and PA was outstanding.  We were about 1 week ahead to the first winter storm to hit those areas.

We received our number 6 cd from production a couple of months ago.  It is called Bound for the Promised Land.  Instructions for ordering from us are on the “Our Music” page on this website.  It can also be obtained at any one of our concerts.

Our New Years Eve concert at Lebanon Mennonite Church will again feature Dale and Gwen Kropf and the Bethel Mountain Band.  We plan to have a guest fiddler join us as well.

Our next tour will be to Sarasota, Florida.  We will be there over the 2nd weekend in February.  Details are on the Schedule page on this website.

Summer and Fall 2018

The band has had a light performance schedule but we have not been idle! We have been working on a new album.  The album will likely be titled, “Bound for the Promised Land.”  The recording has gone well, and the tracks are waiting for final mixing and mastering.  We hope to have the finished product ready in time for our fall concerts.

We have been working to schedule a trip to Virginia and Pennsylvania again this fall.  Things have been falling into place and we are excited about this opportunity to travel and sing!  The details of the trip are on this website on the “schedule” page.

The Bethel Mountain Band Christmas CD is currently in production!  The recording, mixing and mastering have been completed and the master copies have been sent to the company that reproduces them for us.  We are expecting to have them completed and back to us about the first of October.  Practicing and recording Christmas music beginning in February has been a fun and unique experience for the band!

Bluegrass in the Orchard Grass is now less than a month away!  Please join us August 5, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.  While we continue to work on the Christmas CD and prepare for our Indiana tour, we also have been working on the details for our 7th annual B.G.O.G.  As before, this concert will be held at the Ellis and Sue Stutzman Farm three miles north of Lebanon. (Click the “Schedule” tab for full details.) The concert will feature The Bethel Mountain Band, and the duo, Annie Stananec and John Kael.


We met Annie and John when we played the Oregon Bluegrass Association Gospel Show earlier this year.  They were one of the three bands on the schedule that evening.  We are excited to have them join us this year at the Stutzman farm.  Annie is an award winning fiddler. She and John play and sing Bluegrass, Folk and Americana music.
