  • Returning to historic downtown Helena with their entertaining mix of musical fun and laughter, Three on a String is set to perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 20, at Beth El Heritage Hall. Helena National Bank is sponsoring this Warfield Concert.
    Jerry Ryan, guitarist for this Birmingham-based bluegrass band, says he’s never regretted leaving his career as a coach, teacher and high school principal in order to make his dream of performing come true.
    “There’s no feeling in the world like presenting our show to an audience that has no idea who we are and having the show close with a standing ovation,” he said. “I would go back through the past 35 years and do it all over if I could and Bobby would agree to go along.”
    The band features Jerry Ryan, Bobby Horton on banjo, and Brad Ryan on bass. Horton began playing the trumpet at an early age and has since developed a talent for playing over 20 instruments including the banjo, dobro, mandolin, guitar, violin/fiddle, and the Irish pipes. Horton has worked jointly with PBS on documentaries including “The Civil War,” “Lewis and Clark,” and “Baseball” and is constantly sought after for his musical program of Civil War music on the college lecture circuit.
    For almost four decades, Three on a String has performed all across the U.S. opening for such notable entertainers as Bill Cosby, Red Skelton, Barbara Mandrel, George Lindsey, and Ray Stevens.
