Featuring: Grasstowne and the Pinnacle Mountain Boys, with Larry McNeely & Charlie Collins
Friday, June 11, 2010, 6-9pm
Cove Lake State Park
On Friday night June 11th, at Cove Lake State Park in Caryville, Tennessee, the Cumberland Trail State Scenic Trail partners with the Campbell Cultural Coalition to proudly celebrate a rich legacy of music making with a special concert showcase. Against the backdrop of the Cumberland Mountains, along the Cumberland Trail Corridor, we present an extraordinary evening of music, food, and festivity.
The concert brings together, for the first time, the legendary Pinnacle Mountain Boys and Grasstowne, two bluegrass supergroups connected by a tight family bond. Award winning bluegrass singer and songwriter Steve Gulley, founding member of Grasstowne, has long acknowledged the strong influence made on him by his father Don’s innovative 1960s-era partnership with veteran East Tennessee musician Buster Turner and the Pinnacle Mountain Boys. Steve, in fact, dedicated his terrific 2007 solo album, Sounds Like Home, to Don, Buster and the group. Never, though, did Steve likely imagine that he and Grasstowne would have the opportunity to stand onstage, in the heart of their home region, with the long ago disbanded Pinnacle Mountain Boys. Well, on June 11th, this indeed will happen.
For just the second time in over forty years, the outstanding classic lineup of the Pinnacle Mountain Boys will reunite on stage at Cove Lake State Park, to once again thrill audiences with their distinctive harmony singing, virtuosic picking, and lively humor-this time, better yet, paired in continuity with Grasstowne, a new generation of locally rooted bluegrass talent.
