Toasted Ponies bring out the crowd

Posted by the Columbus Telegram

Three performances of The Toasted Ponies brought outstanding bluegrass music to David Place, St. Joseph’s Villa and to Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art the afternoon of Sunday, March 26.

The public was invited to come to any or all of these locations for the 45 minute sets and use the occasion to also visit their friends or relatives in those facilities. Jim Pipher on bass confirmed that there were record numbers at all three locations. Some audience members visited both performances at the nursing homes.
