Bluegrass, Old-time, Country & Folk Music Showcase

Location: R.A. Fountain

In one-hour sets beginning at noon, we featured these fine acts:

Robert Leonard, a young country artist from Rocky Mount.

Waterbound Dulcimers

Flat Mountain Dulcimers
These Fountain favorites were our original Free-at-3:00 act. They’ve added the sweet and mournful sounds of Nancy’s cello to what was already a beautiful old-time sound that seems to fit our old walls perfectly. Performing on dulcimers handmade by J.C. Bradshaw were Margit and Dave Roberson and Nancy Galambush. Dave also added his guitar.

Brian & Mary Lewis, a fine old-time country duo from Chapel Hill

Plan B, a contemporary acoustic string band from the Triangle, with Michael Goy on guitar; Alyson Scoltock on harmonica and autoharp; Brian Lewis on guitar and mandolin; and Kent Rossman on electric bass.

Runs Good, Needs Work, with Alice Gerrard , Pan Riggs, and Gail Gillespie: A great trio of old-time musicians who are also old friends. 

The Smith Brothers Bluegrass Band, Fountain favorites from Rocky Mount, closed it all out, with a little help from Pan Riggs on her 1922 Gibson guitar.
