Australian Trio at Fountain Saturday Night Features National Mandolin Champion

[Fountain, NC] The Blackwood String Band closes out Fountain General Store’s summer concert schedule this coming Saturday night with a concert of Appalachian old-time, country, bluegrass and original music.

From Victoria, Australia, the trio is fronted by Greenville native Andrew Small, who lives in Victoria and is the reigning Australian National Mandolin Champion. He will be joined by his picking pals Clint & Cat on fiddle and guitar. 

Small performed in Fountain last summer with his wife as Ash & Andy. They were slated to perform Saturday night as the New Macedon Rangers, but her return to the U.S. has been delayed. “We still hope to host Ash and Andy later in September,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor.
