In the Tradition

Location: R.A. Fountain

In The Tradition, a 6-piece band from Lynchburg, Virginia, specializes in the traditional style of bluegrass music their name suggests. Formed in 1996, the band performs throughout the mid-Atlantic area and has released seven recordings.

“We have a solid commitment to give audiences an entertaining bluegrass show,” said Donnie Mason, one of the band’s founders, who plays mandolin, sings, and emcees their shows. Also in the band are Chris Hart, dobro; Ray Green, vocals, guitar; Scott Mason, banjo; Ron Padgett, fiddle, mandolin, vocals; and Tammy Mason, vocals, bass.

One reviewer noted that audiences could expect “a blend of music, comedy, showmanship and some unexpected stage antics — a new and creative bluegrass show with tributes to the legends of the past.”
