Song of the Mountains will present another public television taping of the award winning concert series on Saturday, October 4th at The Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Virginia. The concert will be presented as a 2:00pm matinee and will feature six fantastic music groups in a diverse lineup that includes: Emi Sunshine, the Bluegrass Brothers, the Crooked Road Ramblers, the Harris Brothers, the Perkins Boys and Amanda Boyd & Friends.
With a family musical heritage that goes back three generations it’s no surprise that Emi Sunshine is a natural performer. She is amazing at only ten years of age but can sing any song with conviction of a soul who’s been on earth years beyond her age. Emi’s newest album has 16 original songs written or co-written by Emi Sunshine and the title track is a haunting song about the DustBowl. Emi holds the honor of being the youngest performer to grace the stage of Knoxville, Tennessee’s WDVX Radio’s Blue Plate Special program and recently made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry. Writing from her heart and singing from her soul…she will not disappoint.
The Song of the Mountains live concert schedule for Season 10 has just been announced and we have updates on who's playing! Check the list and plan your trip to see the best in live bluegrass, old time, and Americana music!
