[Fountain, NC] The Malpass Brothers return to Fountain General Store for a concert of original and classic country, bluegrass, and bluegrass gospel on Friday night.
Chris and Taylor Malpass, from Goldsboro, have one of the most popular acts in eastern North Carolina. “They’ve been playing here for 8 years now,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor. “Every show is different, and every one has been terrific.”
The Malpasses have been part of Merle Haggard’s opening act for the past three years, and their latest CD, Memory That Bad, was produced by Hag Records. It includes four Haggard tunes as well as several originals penned by Chris Malpass.
The Malpass Brothers’ February 10 concert begins at 7:30. Reserved seats are $12.50 and must be pre-paid for this show. General admission is $10.
Also on Friday, a Brunswick stew sale at R.A. Fountain will benefit the Fountain Presbyterian Church. The stew will be made in the old-fashioned way–in a cast iron pot, cooked over wood, and stirred with a hand-hewn oar–by Henry and Jerry Bailey of Fountain. Quarts ($8) and bowls ($4) will be available at Friday night’s show as long as the supply lasts. Quarts can be reserved.
