Hear some great guitar picking from three generations of star performers and learn how they make their music at the second Blue Ridge Music Trails "Traditions Concert", Saturday, November 30, at 8 pm at the White Horse Black Mountain Music Hall in Black Mountain. This concert features "Guitar Styles of North Carolina."
The "Traditions" concerts are part musical performance, part storytelling, and part learning experience for the audience as musicians demonstrate their style of playing, tell the history of how they developed their techniques and share stories from their music experiences. This concert will feature the guitar styles of some of our region's most talented and entertaining musicians including Grammy award winner Bryan Sutton, Master Fiddler Josh Goforth, and veteran guitarist Leonard Hollifield, the guitarist for the Stoney Creek Boys, the longtime host band at the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival and Shindig on the Green.
