Grass In The Hall Concert Announced At The Charleston Music Hall

Awendaw Green is proud to announce the March 1, 2013 Grass in the Hall concert with Town Mountain, Cumberland River and Barefoot Movement at Charleston Music Hall.  Doors open at 6:30 pm and the concert begins at 7:30 pm.  Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door and can be purchased at Etix.com.  This is a special kick-off event for the Sweet Grass Music Festival and The Charleston Bluegrass Festival that will take place this summer.  More details on those events will be announced soon.

TownMountainsmAsheville, North Carolina’s bluegrass band, Town Mountain, recently released their fourth album, Leave the Bottle.  The band finds themselves becoming one of the preeminent torchbearers of their craft, facing a promising future. “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. Leave the Bottle comes highly recommended.” Always contributing to the evolution of the bluegrass form, they toss influences as varied as surf-rock, gospel, and honky-tonk country into their field of play.

2013-cumberlandriver-waterHarlan, 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” released yesterday on Madison Gate Records.  “Justified” appears on their first Rural Rhythm Records album, THE LIFE WE LIVE.  The band is currently in the studio recording their second album set for release on Rural Rhythm Records this summer.  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. Watch FX Network’s TV show JUSTIFIED to hear their music.

barefootmovementThe 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.
