A highly energetic country group well known in the area, Classy Country Strings will be in the spotlight at the Sept. 24 meeting of the Fairfield Glade Resident Homeowners meeting, starting at 6 P.M. at the Legends.
Having played in many venues in our area, Dick Walter, Chuck Tallent and Rob Baker make up this “Classy” group.

Dick Walter has a professional background as an accountant. However, through his hobby of music, Dick has mastered the violin (fiddle), the upright String Bass, and Electric Bass. He has played at the Playhouse and Palace Theatre locally.
