[Fountain, NC] Buddy Zincone and Greenville Grass play bluegrass Friday night at Fountain General Store.

Jonathan Byrd, called “one of the top 50 songwriters of the last 50 years” by the Chicago Tribune, performs original alt-Americana with his band on Saturday night.

Local bluegrassers have been jamming at Buddy Zincone’s Greenville home since the 1960s. His band, Greenville Grass, was originally organized from those jam sessions and has gone through several incarnations over the years. Friday night’s lineup includes Zincone on banjo and Dobro, Mike Kinzie on fiddle, Willie Nelms on bass, Bill Poplin on guitar, and Roger Sauerborn on mandolin.

Expect a mix of traditional bluegrass as well as some surprising bluegrass takes on contemporary hits like the Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood.”
