Lonesome River Band
Lonesome River Band will kick off today's new album release, Bridging the Tradition (Mountain Home Music) with three special performances this weekend.
Lonesome River Band had been established for nearly a decade when the band released its landmark album, Carrying the Tradition, in 1991. The critically acclaimed project ushered in a new era for Bluegrass by acknowledging tradition while introducing new elements that expanded the genre.
Now, 25 years later, this award-winning band is again set to build on the familiar while adding bold progressiveness to its legend with this latest release, Bridging the Tradition (Mountain Home Music Company).
For more than three decades, Lonesome River Band has set a standard that other Bluegrass groups have aspired towards. They have returned to live up to that standard with their first original studio release in four years, Turn on a Dime, from Mountain Home Music Company.
Lonesome River Band heads west this weekend with performances in California and Arizona over the next several weeks. Their first show of the tour will be held at the Palms Playhouse in Winters, CA this Friday followed by “A Night at the Grange” concert in Morgan Hill, CA on Saturday.
The award-winning LONESOME RIVER BAND fresh off a Hollywood, CA performance this past weekend, will head back to Nashville today for three Nashville concerts this week. The group will no doubt thrill fans with performances at MUSIC CITY ROOTS Live from the Loveless Barn, SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction STUDIO SPECIAL taping (live audience), and WSM Radio’s STATION INN SESSIONS.
