LAFTA

Next Main Stage Concert:

Greg Blake and Friends

Greg Blake and Friends
Saturday, January 6, 7:30 p.m.

You'll hear it in his voice immediately ... the original strain of Appalachian mountain music that lies at the heart of all great modern bluegrass and country. Greg Blake grew up in the mountains of southwest West Virginia, and when he sings, you can hear a voice that connects to the great old generations of mountain singers, invested with a rich twang and rumbling drawl, and the kind of eerily powerful high tenor cry that first inspired the 'high, lonesome sound.' Greg has been lead guitarist with Jeff Scroggins and Colorado and played with many other bluegrass bands and musicians. Greg will be joined by Todd Davis on banjo, Brian McCarty on mandolin, and Grant Cochran on bass for this exciting show.
