Hot on the heels of a stellar show during the Augusta Heritage Festival, Mountain Stage with Larry Groce is proud to announce its return to the Myles Center for the Arts at Davis & Elkins College on Saturday, October 8, for a special show presented by the Mountain State Forest Festival.
Tickets for this October 8 show are $20-$30 and are available online. Doors open at 6:30pm, with the show starting promptly at 7:30pm.
This October 8 show will mark Mountain Stage episode #880 and will feature bluegrass heavyweights and former Lonesome River bandmates Dan Tyminski and Ronnie Bowman. Fourteen-time Grammy winner Dan Tyminski is considered one of the most recognizable and popular male vocalists on today’s bluegrass and country music scenes, even acting as George Clooney’s singing voice in the Coen Brothers classic O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Joining Dan Tyminski on this October 8 show is Ronnie Bowman, three-time winner of IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year and chart-topping songwriter for such country music mainstays as Brooks & Dunn, Lee Ann Womack, and Kenny Chesney.
Sara Watkins will also perform on this October 8 Mountain Stage. Watkins has an impressive resume as fiddler and founding member of the progressive bluegrass group Nickel Creek, touring percussionist for The Decemberists, and acoustic roots member of the super group I’m With Her (alongside Sarah Jarosz and Aofie O’Donovan).
More acts for this October 8 show will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out the rest of our great shows we have coming up in October, including October 16 at the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences in Charleston with Foy Vance, Amanda Shires, Carsie Blanton, Chris Kasper, and Oh Pep!.
