In the Tradition

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

The return of In the Tradition, a 6-piece bluegrass band out of Lynchburg, Virginia, headlines the upcoming weekend of live music performances at Fountain General Store.

Formed in 1995, In the Tradition is one of the most popular bluegrass bands in the southeast. Their first visit to Fountain, in January, brought out a crowd of fans who had enjoyed them at bluegrass shows in Kinston.

“This is one of the highest energy acts, some of the best pickers we’ve had in our two years of operation,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor. 

In the Tradition is a family band in the truest sense of the term: led by Donnie Mason on mandolin, it also includes his son, Scott, on banjo; Scott’s wife, Tammy, on bass, and Tammy’s father, Ray Green, on guitar. Also in the band are Ron Padgett on fiddle and mandolin and Chris Hart on dobro.

In the Tradition was recently featured at the “Nothin’ Fancy Music Festival,” in Buena Vista, Virginia, with Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, IIIrd Tyme Out, CherryHolmes, and the James King Band.
