In the Tradition

Location: R.A. Fountain

A small but enthusiastic crowd greeted Lynchburg’s In the Tradition. They put on a great show nonetheless, and we hope they’ll try us again. Lead singer Donnie Mason, on mandolin, was in fine form–and there was a lot less of him, too. Son Scott Mason on banjo, with his wife, Tammy Mason on bass and really sweet, powerful vocals, and her dad, Ray Green on guitar, make In the Tradition an old-time family bluegrass band. Uncle George Evans joined in on Dobro.
