Greenvile Grass

Location: R.A. Fountain

from our promo for this concert

Buddy Zincone and Greenville Grass are fronted by banjo picker Zincone, who has hosted bluegrass jams at his home since the 1960s. Regulars Willie Nelms on bass, Bill Poplin on guitar, and Roger Sauerborn will be joined by guest fiddler Derek Deakins. Although their performances are primarily traditional bluegrass, they also play originals and put bluegrass spins on pop classics.

Deakins is a former Nashville, Tennessee session and concert artist who has performed with the Osborne Brothers, Mac Wiseman, Charlie Daniels, and Blake Shelton among many others. He has also appeared on the Grand Ole Opry Live, Good Morning America, the CBS Early Show, the Jimmy Kimmell Show, and Late Night with Craig Ferguson. 

Deakins is performing with Greenville Grass some as he’s living in Greenville while pursuing a master’s degree in instrumental conducting and violin pedagogy at ECU.
