Larry Sigmon and Martha Spencer at Carter Fold April 1st

Larry Sigmon and Martha SpencerHiltons, VA -- Saturday, April 1st, 2017, at 7:30 p.m., the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert of old time music by Larry Sigmon and Martha Spencer – the Unique Sound of the Mountains. If you ever saw Larry Sigmon and the Unique Sound of the Mountains, you know the sound was unlike anything you ever heard before. Over the course of more than ten albums and several years of performing, Larry Sigmon and his late partner Barbara Poole continuously brought the house down with a variety of fast-paced mountain music tunes fueled by Sigmon's high-speed claw hammer banjo picking and Poole's infectious "heartbeat" bass plucking. While there were several groups out there that could get you onto the dance floor, no old time band could wear out your clogging shoes faster than the Unique Sound of the Mountains.

Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out at Carter Family Fold Saturday

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."

Béla Fleck & Abigail WashburnPagosa Springs, CO -- Sure, in the abstract, a banjo duo might seem like a musical concept beset by limitations.
