Winter Concert Series

We are gearing up for another winter concert series at the historic Colonial Theatre in Canton NC.  It is going to be an incredible series and we are excited about the extremely talented artists joining us this year. The concert series will kick off on December 1st, 2012 with SHAWN CAMP, Mike Bub, Larry Atamanuik & Guthrie Trapp. A bold and distinctive singer, a songwriter who’s provided material for artists ranging from Ralph Stanley, Del McCoury and Ricky Skaggs to Garth Brooks and Brooks & Dunn, and a multi-instrumentalist who’s played with everyone from Yonder Mountain String Band and Alan Jackson to the Osborne Brothers and John Prine—Camp’s music sprawls across the lines that divide country, Americana, bluegrass and roots rock. January 5th, 2013 will be John Driskell Hopkins. John is a member of the Zac Brown Band.  An multi award winning musician and song writer and most importantly a dear friend to Balsam Range.  We first met John about a year ago and have performed with him on several occasions.  We have been recording with John on a solo project which features his original songs.  The project is due to be released around late October or November.  Balsam Range will be performing with John to recreate the recording live. February 2nd , 2013 will feature Missy Raines and the New Hip. Missy Raines is the most decorated bass player in the history of the International Bluegrass Music Association- with 7 Bass Player of the Year Awards to her credit. A former member of the Grammy Nominated Claire Lynch Band, the acclaimed duo, Jim Hurst and Missy Raines, Missy...

Thank You

A great big thanks goes out to all the great people in the world who have lifted me and my family up through this interesting time. Turns out there are still a lot of wonderful people performing acts of kindness everyday and it has meant the world to me. Who knows how this will all end up with recovery. I may not do somethings as well; but, there will certainly be other things I will do much better. Like, look for the best in everyone and demand the best from myself. Folks often ask what defines Bluegrass music? It certainly has a great deal to do with its musical interpretations; but after receiving prayers, support and kindness from all over the world…I would easily say now that it is the people that make up the Bluegrass family and community that defines Bluegrass. Good down to earth people with strong faith and belief who are more concerned with others than themselves and who rally around those that are down to lift them up and are prepared to see it through to the end. I am truly blessed to have the greatest friends and family that anyone could ever hope for. You know who you are and I thank you and love you...

THANK YOU!

What a great way to start of the Season of Giving!  Balsam Range couldn’t be more proud of their first fundraising event held this past weekend at the Colonial Theater!  Thanks to our friends, families and fans for making it possible for us along with our good friend, John Wiggins, to give a donation of $10,050.00 to Haywood County Meals on Wheels.  This donation will be used to provide meals to folks who are on the waiting list to receive meals through this valuable service.  I can’t imagine having to choose between buying medicine or groceries and hopefully, we have helped to eliminate this problem for some.  Many folks were instrumental in making this event possible but without those who came to the show and made the donations this would have not been possible.  So to those of you who donated, we say THANK YOU! Last Saturday also marked the beginning of our Winter Concert Series to be held the first Saturday of the winter months at the intimate Colonial Theater in Canton, North Carolina.  We are quite excited about this year’s line-up and are hoping you will join us as we present some of our favorites in the music world.  You can preview a list of our guests and buy $15.00 tickets for all the shows through our website (www.balsamrange.com) or by calling our favorite Town of Canton Employee, Denise, at the Colonial Theater (828-235-2760).  The next show will be January 7th, 2012 with Deep River...
