Saline, MI - The Saline Fiddlers proudly announce their 14th annual Winter Hometown Concert with guest artist The Infamous Stringdusters, to take place February 2, 2008, at 7:00 p.m., in the Ellen A. Ewing Performing Arts Center at Saline High School, in Saline MI.
Headlining the evening's concert are Sugar Hill recording artists, The Infamous Stringdusters (Andy Hall, dobro; Andy Falco, guitar; Chris Pandolfi, banjo; Jeremy Garrett, fiddle; Jesse Cobb, mandolin; and Travis Book, upright bass).
In 2007, The Stringdusters became the first band in history to win the International Bluegrass Music Association's awards for Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Emerging Artist in a single year.
Of them, the Tennessean's Peter Gilstrap, writes, "When it comes to the chops department, the bluegrass-pumping Nashville-based sextet is strong on all fronts, from sweet-to-searing vocals, to mind-blowing instrumental capabilities to that good ol', down-home, aw shucks quality that so many bluegrass groups stab at but never ultimately achieve."
The Saline Fiddlers will kick off the concert with a new stage show of music, singing and dance. The Saline Fiddlers are a 30-piece, semi-professional, touring fiddle band of music students from Saline High School. They present an upbeat, lively show from the traditions of American folk fiddle, bluegrass, western swing and Celtic music.
Tickets for the Hometown Concert range in price from $10 to $20, and go on sale January 7th. For tickets and information, visit www.salinefiddlers.com, or call 866-257-5333.
