Wednesday 14th Nov 2012, will see authentic old-time American mountain music from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia playing in Sydney’s Cat and the Fiddle Hotel at 456 Darling Street, Balmain (cnr Elliott St),
For fans of American old-time mountain music, the Whitetop Mountaineers are the ‘real deal’, and are a live act not to be missed. From Virginia, USA, Martha Spencer and Jackson Cunningham return to Australia by popular demand for the fifth consecutive year.
Both musicians are skilled multi-instrumentalists – Jackson on guitar, mandolin & claw hammer banjo, and Martha on fiddle, guitar & banjo. They are both strong vocal performers and their close harmonies are indicative of the old-time and bluegrass traditions from which they draw their repertoire. In addition to being a talented musician & singer, Martha is also an exceptional dancer – having spent much of her life learning Appalachian dance.
The concert is set for Wednesday 14th Nov 2012 and starts at 8:00pm and Tickets are available at the door – $25/$20 conc.
