(Apple Valley) – The Bascom Family Band will present a “mini concert” at the Victor Valley Museum on Saturday, September 8, from 1 to 2 p.m. The program, a part of the “Discovery Afternoons” series, is included with paid museum admission; visitors will enjoy half-price admission during the event.
The Victorville band is made up of members of the Bascom family—John (on the upright bass), Lisa (on the mandolin) and Juliette (on the fiddle, guitar, and mandolin)—along with friends John Hixon and Patty Hedges. Multi-talented twelve year old Juliette Bascom is the star of the show. Being a fifth generation musician, she plays a variety of instruments to bluegrass, country and old time fiddle music. She has performed on stage from California to Canada since she was five years old with famous performers such as Roy Clark, Larry Gatlin, Rhonda Vincent, Belinda Gail, Devon Dawson and Earl Sites.
Last year the Bascoms performed for the Roy Rogers’ Centennial Birthday Celebration at the Double R Bar Ranch. This year they will perform again, but for the Dale Evans 100th Birthday events. Juliette’s grandfather, Earl Bascom, was a famous rodeo cowboy and western artist who is honored with a permanent display in the Victor Valley Museum.
