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

Posted on: April 23rd, 2011 by Darren Nicholson

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 ‚Äď MerleFest w/ Lyle Lovett, ¬†Zac Brown Band, ¬†Randy Travis, ¬†Doc Watson, ¬†Doobie Brothers, ¬†& 100 others.

4/30 Woodford VA ‚Äď Mr. B‚Äôs Bluegrass Festival w/ Grascals and Jr Sisk & Ramblers Choice.

Get your tickets now.  We’ve had a marvelous time so far with the Colonial Winter Concert Series.  Much fun and sold-out  crowds.  Our next one will be no exception.  We have The Harris Brothers from Lenoir, NC on 2/19/11.  They are unbelievable and play every style of music.  This one will be a live taping too so come be with us!

Reggie and Ryan Harris.¬† Words cannot describe how tremendously talented these two guys are. ¬†Blues, Country, Rock, Swing‚Ķthen turn around a wear a Doc Watson or Larry Sparks tune out. ¬†They can do it all. They‚Äôre both amazing players and singers. You can’t believe it until you see it. ¬†This show won’t just be for bluegrass fans but for music lovers. The first time BR saw them was a year or so ago in Cherryville, NC at the Aldridge Festival.¬† We were all blown away and knew we had to play more with these guys.

Multi-Grammy Winner David Holt says ‚ÄúTheir talent defies description‚ÄĚ.¬† I agree completely.

We tried to pick bands for this series that bring something different musically each show.  But they are all good and we’re so proud to have them.  Keep in mind, if we’re not near you stay tuned to find out about the Colonial tapings as they become available on the web.

The schedule is starting to crank back up!
