Awendaw Green is proud to announce the March 1st "Grass in the Hall" concert with Town Mountain, Cumberland River and Barefoot Movement at Charleston Music Hall.
Asheville, North Carolina’s bluegrass band, Town Mountain, recently released their fourth album, Leave the Bottle. “Centered around strong, soulful vocals, and poised to stay put,” says Woody Platt of the Steep Canyon Rangers, “Town Mountain are true to bluegrass in all the right ways and this new project keeps them firmly connected to the traditions of the genre, while also allowing them to reach out into the broad horizon of string band music.
Harlan, Kentucky based national touring act, Cumberland River is celebrating their original song, “Justified” being included on the new album, JUSTIFIED: Music From the Original Television Series. Cumberland River’s roots have run deep in the Harlan County Kentucky hills for generations. Even with the band’s progressive sound, you can still hear the heritage of traditional bluegrass music in their songs.
The Barefoot Movement is a quartet of immensely talented musicians from North & South Carolina and Tennessee whose music successfully melds Americana influences with the invigoration of acoustic modern rock and jazz. Their sound simultaneously captures the rustic beauty of old Southern front porch Bluegrass improvisation while being immediately accessible to the modern era.
Doors to the show open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door and can be purchased at Etix.com.
