Backline – Bluegrass Band at the Carolina Music Museum @ Carolina Music Museum
Jun 21 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Backline, a five-piece bluegrass band who recently signed with Mountain Fever Records. Katelyn Ingardia, guitar, Travis Tucker dobro, Milom Williams II, mandolin, Zachary Carter, banjo, Jason Belue, Doghouse bass &, of course, everyone sings! Most of the music is their own & several of their original songs found the top 10 on the Bluegrass Grassicana & Gospel Charts. Steve Martin, the Bluegrass Broadcaster of the Year, said, “For being relatively young & new as a group, (they have) a close unity that sends you back to double check their pedigree. Beautiful vocals, tight tasty musical support, they are in this as one. Generating all original material with such power is unusual anymore. All of it works like they mined the vast heritage preceding them. In their hearts & souls, they did, but this is all Backline.” Call 864-520-8807 to purchase your tickets. $15 Adults & $5 Students.
