Some great Americana/Roots festivals helping get Balsam Range music to new audiences.

We are tickled to be playing a lot of shows coming up that are more for general music than one specific genre. We love this because that is basically what we consider Balsam Range music. We all have diverse musical backgrounds and tastes. We feel that and original material is what indentifies us. We love to play old bluegrass standards, our own music, and also have a toe in the pool of many other genres.  These types of shows get us in front of new folks that may never see us otherwise and we hope to do something they like. Web-streaming, Satellite radio and listeners like you have been super to us too.  And humbly said have given us many National #1 songs. Included recently launching “Trains I Missed” to number one. We’d love to see BR grow and our music grow to roots music fans and beyond. Thanks for all the support …we’re having a blast.  All these things are helping roots music, like ours, so please support them. Balsam Range just wants to make the best music we can, do a little something for everyone’s taste, and ENTERTAIN!!  We love you guys!!!

4/28 & 4/29 Wilkesboro NC – MerleFest w/ Lyle Lovett,  Zac Brown Band,  Randy Travis,  Doc Watson,  Doobie Brothers,  & 100 others.

4/30 Woodford VA – Mr. B’s Bluegrass Festival w/ Grascals and Jr Sisk & Ramblers Choice.

5/6 Maggie Valley NC – Americana Music Fest MV Fairgrounds w/ the amazing Harris Brothers.  They play everything you can imagine.

We had a blast for our final show in Canton last night. Thanks again to all who came & all who supported our winter concert series. You guys made it wonderful. Thanks to Champion Credit Union & Chad McMahon w/ State Farm. What fun to hang out with our friends, The Boxcars. They are a super band but even better folks. Another thanks to John Holder of Blueridge Sound for a great job throughout the series. Big thanks to Peter & WNC Bluegrass, Denise & The Colonial Theatre in Canton.

Our record label, Mountain Home was a huge part of it and had most of the series filmed. They also presented us with a cool #1 Song plaque and have a #1 party in the works.  We found out yesterday that “Trains I Missed” is the #1 song for May in the Bluegrass Unlimited chart.  Wow …we can’t believe it.THANK YOU ALL!!!

And remember… the show last night w/ Boxcars and Balsam Range was filmed and will be available for purchase soon through web-site.
It was a special night. THANKS

We have a super tour schedule …so come hang out with us!
