Here’s a little something for our local folks. This is happening on Sunday, and I probably won’t make it, since I’ll be on The Santa Train all day Saturday, and I have a lot to do after that trip. But, I did want to share this with all of you, just in case any of you can make it. Looks like it’s going to be an awesome event.
On November 24th, 2013 there is to be a special show at The Carter Fold in Hiltons, Virginia as Hunter Berry & Friends return to The Fold.
Hunter Berry from Elizabethton, Tennessee started learning to play fiddle at the age of 9. He has went on to perform with such acts as Melvin Goins & Windy Mountain, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and for the last eleven years, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage. He has been a final nominee for the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Fiddle Player of the Year Award, and has been a multiple winner of the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America’s Fiddle Player of the Year Award. In 2007 Hunter Berry released the critically acclaimed solo project "Wow, Baby" which featured some of bluegrass music’s best musicians.
Hunter Berry & Friends featuring Rhonda Vincent & The Rage will appear at The Carter Family Memorial Music Center, 3449 A.P. Carter Highway in Hiltons, Virginia on November 24, 2013 at 3:00 PM and doors will open at 2:00 PM that day. Admission for children 6 and under is free and for children ages 7 to 11 is $1.00. East Tennessee State University students with show of college ID is $5.00 and for ages 12 and up, admission is $10.00.
This performance is to be a live recorded performance to be released at a future date so there will be no dancing allowed. Come out and enjoy a wonderful afternoon with Hunter Berry & Fiends featuring Rhonda Vincent & The Rage as they play and record for Hunter Berry’s next solo project.
If any of you can head out and be a part of this audience, I know you’ll have a great time. If you take pictures, remember to send some my direction, we’ll be happy to get them posted. Be sure to check out his facebook page, and follow him on Twitter @BluegrassToday,
