Four Glenville State College students have turned their attention to bluegrass music, forming a "Mountain Fury."

The group will be performing Saturday at the Bear Fork Trading Post, Rt. 33/119, 16 miles west of Glenville at Stumptown, WV.

Twins, Rebekah and Elizabeth Long, are from Lincolnton, Georgia and Eileen Marsh and Rachel Singleton are West Virginia girls.

Performer Eileen Marsh said the group has had a number of different influences "mixing some old sounds with some new sounds."

The group was originally the College Bluegrass Band.

Melvin Cottrell of the Bear Fork Trading Post said "When folks come and hear the girls, they're really surprised and entertained."

"The last time they came, gospel music legend Ben Speer, came with the group," said Cottrell. Speer (left) is a family friend of the Long twins. He is a member of The Speer Family, one of the most visible groups in Southern Gospel Music, Ben traveled and sang with the group for 62 years.

The Bear Fork Trading post is a project of Melvin and Patty Cottrell, booking groups every Saturday night at 7 p.m.

Admission is only $5 - children under 12 free with paid adult - refreshments are available - no alcohol.

Future bands, Fine Cut Grass, Lost 'n Lonesome, Stoney Creek, Taylor Made, Dave Morris Family Band and Verlin Belcher Band.
