Roby Huffman & the Bluegrass Cutups

Location: R.A. Fountain

our promo for this concert

Roby Huffman and the Bluegrass Cutups return to Fountain General Store this coming Friday night for a Blue Moon concert of traditional and original bluegrass music.

Huffman and his Cutups have been performing and recording since the 1960s. He has toured with various incarnations of the Cutups to festivals across the U.S. and in Europe, although in recent years his travels have been limited. Fountain General Store remains one of his favorite places to perform.  “We always look forward to getting back to Fountain,” he said. “That’s a good place for our kind of music.”

Huffman plays guitar and sings lead in the high-and-lonesome style that many associate with traditional bluegrass. His son, Jeff Huffman, plays lead guitar; Daniel Casey plays banjo, and Casey’s daughter, Samantha Casey, plays fiddle. Dell Tims plays bass.

Both Caseys take turns singing lead, also.

“This is as good a traditional bluegrass band as you’ll find anywhere,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor. “You’ve got some of the best instrumentalists around and the godfather of East Carolina bluegrass up front, always in his white hat, and always a lot of fun. And of course he’ll be playing one of his favorites, Bill Monroe’s “Blue Moon of Kentucky.'”
