WE ARE SO PLEASED TO HAVE THE GREAT DAVID HOLT, BRYAN SUTTON AND T. MICHAEL COLEMAN ON OUR 2ND WINTER SERIES CONCERT AT THE COLONIAL THEATER. THESE ARE CLASS PLAYERS IN A NEW SETTING…AND BALSAM RANGE IS EXCITED TO GET THEM TO CANTON. THE ROOM IS ABOUT 2/3 SOLD OUT…AND WE’D LIKE TO PACK IT FOR THESE FELLOWS. COME AND BE WITH US IF YOU CAN…AND YOU CAN BET THERE WILL BE A HOT JAM AT THE END.
For those of you who may not have seen David in concert…he packs a mean claw-hammer 5-string banjo. David is known for his entertaining style of old-time, swing, and blues music. He is one fine slide guitar man…and David has studied with many of the old masters. He is a multi-Grammy winner with a smile as big as Texas and a double handful of songs to match. David has deep roots in the Haywood County music scene due to all the years he spent performing with The Luke Smathers String Band.
This is Marc speaking…and I’d like to say that I’ve never stood beside a better musician or a more decent human being than Bryan Sutton. I was lucky enough to see a lot of his young years with his family’s band…and I got to play on the first record he was ever featured on…and you know what…it was a Crossroads recording with our buddy Tim Surrett!!! I got to play on 5 of Ricky Skaggs’ albums over the years…and the one I received a Grammy for was Bluegrass Rules with Bryan Sutton! He is one good guy…and he has the right lick at the right song every time. Either Bryan or David could put on this show by themselves…but to have them collectively with legendary bassman, T. Michael Coleman is “top of the top!”
This will be one fun night!!!
