Orange Line Special Reunion February 4th

Orange Line Special Reunion February 4th

The Orange Line Special band will hold a Reunion Concert on Saturday, February 4, 2012 as part of The Folklore Society of Greater Washington’s annual Mid-Winter Festival (“Mini-Fest’) in Takoma Park. The event runs from Noon to 10:30 pm, and Orange Line performs in the Roots Americana Room (104) during Charlie Bean’s “DC Doin’s” session from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM.

The Orange Line Special bluegrass band was formed in 1999 when Charlie Bean and Friends were invited to play at the Washington Folk Festival. Charlie and bandmates Lynn Healey, Richard Dress, Paul Gregory, and Mike Licht noticed that they each lived near an Orange Line Metro station, so the band name choice came easily. The group disbanded in 2007, when Richard moved to Nashville. Banjo virtuoso Joe Zauner will fill in for Richard at the 2012 Takoma Park Mini-Fest.
