SALTY SUITES, The Scott Gates and Chuck Hailes collaboration will be performing a show at this venue as a part of The Church's 2010 Music Guild season Concert series. There will be a beautiful Choral Concert at 5:00 followed by Salty Suites. Please arrive before 5:00 PM.

Scott Gates and Chuck Hailes are of a like mind, they live in the world of live acoustic music, sharing a passion for roots and bluegrass music as well as traditional mountain music, and the classical repertory. Scott began playing mandolin as a child, and plays the guitar with equal fire and brilliance. He has been a mainstay at Bluegrass festivals for many years and holds a special place in his heart for these festivals and the people he sees year after year. Salty Suites members have performed all over the country and with artists as varied as John McEuen, and Nathan McEuen, Steve Martin on the Ellen Show, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Loggins and a virtual who's who of bluegrass players.

Scott has started writing music of his own and will be bringing many of these tunes to you this year. Chuck Hailes, is one of the top Bass players in the country. With a Bachelors of the Arts degree in Music, Chuck writes his own tunes and has teamed with Scott to create many new musical gems. Also carrying with him a background in bluegrass music, Chuck sings and plays in a way that is uniquely his own. The future of this music we love so much is very bright indeed.
