Bluegrass Express Live returns this Thursday!

WMMT proudly presents


Featuring: NewTown

Thursday, September 6 @ 7:30 PM

The up-and-coming bluegrass band NewTown from Lexington, KY is set to take the stage for Bluegrass Express Live! at the intimate Appalshop Theater in Whitesburg, KY on Thursday, September 6, 2012. NewTown features five artists demonstrating a vast array of acoustic music styling. The band is able to journey into a realm of their own while still maintaining the spirit of the legendary bluegrass and “Newgrass” sounds created within the walls of Lexington’s Red Slipper Lounge during the mid 70’s.

NewTown is Kati Penn on fiddle and vocals, Jr. Williams on banjo and vocals, CJ Cain playing guitar, James Kee on mandolin and vocals, and Terry Poirier on bass and vocals. NewTown creates their sound as a cohesive musical unit with a tangible diversity to which all listeners can relate.

Join us for Bluegrass Express Live!, Thursday, February 9 and see bluegrass the way it should be at the Appalshop Theater.  It’s like having them in your living room. For more information and/or to make reservations call WMMT at 606-633-0108.  Doors open at 6:30 PM with showtime at 7:30 PM. Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for kids & students.

    I heard a song with Coal in the words numerous times around 7 to 8 am on the 6th of September. A man sang one verse and a women sang the other. I did not catch the name of the band or the song name. Can you help?
