Grass Strings

Location: R.A. Fountain

This was the Grass Strings’ first time back in Fountain since they stole the show when Jean-Luc Leroux played here back in June 2011.

Based in Kannapolis, the Grass Strings have been picking traditional country and bluegrass and bluegrass gospel since 1974. Original members guitarist Jeff Russell and mandolin player Jim Burris are joined by Jason Hatley, bass;, Lynn Russell, dobro; and Randy Mauldin on banjo in their latest lineup. Excellent pickers, they also sang some sweet five-part harmonies.
