Lonesome River Band has been one of the most popular and influential acts on the bluegrass festival and concert circuit since the release of their breakout CD, Carrying The Tradition, back in 1991. The band has since evolved over the years with many different players and currently includes award winning Banjo picker Sammy Shelor, Guitar player Brandon Rickman, Fiddler Mike Hartgrove, Bassman Barry Reed and on the mandolin, Randy Jones. With this newest version of Lonesome River Band, you can be assured their prominence as one of the most influential acts in bluegrass music is here to stay.
The Saline Fiddlers is America's premier youth fiddling show band. High school students performing music, song and dance, they blend traditional and nontraditional fiddle tunes with a philharmonic size wave of sound. The Fiddlers have played across the globe and even the White House (three times) with a fusion of folk, bluegrass, mountain music, western swing, Celtic, jazz, pop and American classics that starts toes tapping and hands clapping.
