Bluegrass takes center stage at The Arts Place on Saturday, August 18th with a performance by triad natives None of The Above.
None Of The Above features Tim Sands on lead guitar and vocals, Tim Harrison on the Upright Bass, David Crawford on the Mandolin, Lee Cecil on Dobro and Jon Cornatzer on Banjo. Working with traditional bluegrass instrumentation, the band has a unique sound that includes elements and material from a variety of styles including bluegrass, Americana, alternative country and their own original material.
The 3rd Saturday Grass series premiered this May with the aim of presenting traditional music to the residents of Stokes County at a low price. Stokes County Arts Council Executive Director Eddy McGee says, “Bluegrass music is now performed and enjoyed all around the world, but what some may not know is that many believe that the classic bluegrass sound started right here in North Carolina with the likes of Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson and is now carried on by Stokes County natives Lou Reid and Alan Bibey as well as many others.”
Tickets are just $5 and kids are free! They can be purchased ONLINE, by phone, and at the door.
Showtime is 7pm at The Arts Place, 502 Main Street, Danbury!
