Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme OutSaturday, March 18th, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert of bluegrass music by Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out. This concert is part of the group's 25th anniversary tour and celebration – Tyme for 25. Playing music is the easy part," says Russell Moore with an ever-so-slightly rueful laugh looking back on more than thirty years of doing what he grew up wanting to do. "By the time we put this band together" - he's talking about IIIrd Tyme Out, his musical vehicle for over twenty-five years now - "I was realistic enough to know that bands come and go. Being able to stay together is the hurdle that everyone faces. So I didn't have a preconceived notion that someday I'd be celebrating twenty-five years with IIIrd Tyme Out - but I did feel like I would be playing music for the rest of my life."
