America’s Navy is coming to Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, one of eight cities in four states to host a performance by the United States Navy Band during its 2019 tour — one of the signature outreach programs of the U.S. Navy.
The United States Navy Band Country Current performance is scheduled for Thursday, August 15th, at 7 p.m. at Waynesboro Area Senior High in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.
The Navy’s premiere country-bluegrass ensemble Country Current is renowned for its versatility and phenomenal musicianship, performing a blend of modern country music and cutting-edge bluegrass. Reaching out to communities both locally and nationally, they regularly perform for veterans, elementary schools, and in support of our active-duty Sailors. All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public. 

Mark your calendars to join us for an interactive day of history and fun.  Additional information can be found on our website www.renfrewmuseum.org under events or call the office at 717-762-4723 to learn more about Royer Farmstead Day.
