Harry Bolick and the Mississippi Travelers String Band – Book Signing and Concert

May 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$20.

Over ten years ago, author, fiddler, and researcher Harry Bolick began a labor of love, tracking down every last bit of Mississippi fiddling history and music. Internet detective work combined with thousands of miles driving to remote parts of the state for interviews has produced his second book documenting the tradition, “Fiddle Tunes from Mississippi, Commercial and Informal Recordings 1920-2018.” Copies of the book will be available.

With the Mississippi Travelers String Band, Bolick will celebrate the new book with stories and tunes from the dawn of country music. The Travelers also perform some of Harry’s newly composed tunes but in the old Mississippi style.

The Mississippi Travelers are Harry Bolick – fiddle and vocals, Brian Slattery – banjo, fiddle and vocals, Jaques DiCroce – guitar, and Charlie Shaw, bass.

This event will be held on our outdoor stage or in our carriage shed if it rains. Bring a picnic dinner! Beverages and snacks will be available.

$20 at the door
