Our 2020 Show, the “Soothing Sounds of the 60s” will tentatively be held on September 19, 2020 at 7:00pm & September 20, 2020 at 3:00pm:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Old Line Statesmen have postponed their June 6th and 7th show “Smooth Sounds of the 60’s”. Barring any further developments, it is now tentatively scheduled for September 19th and 20th in the Scott Center for the Fine and Performing Arts, Carroll Community College, Westminster, MD.

As we all work through the Social Distancing, and eventually get back to singing and some semblance of normalcy, we’ll post our progress here on the web-site. Come back often and we will write updates as we get them.

Tickets for the 2020 show are on sale now. For more information on the show and to purchase your tickets, click here.
