Calico Moon, comprised of husband/wife team Mark and Aimee Bumgarner, seamlessly blends old school country, mountain soul, and a dash of hillbilly twang. With their fusion of the traditional sound of Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty, the cosmic country of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, and the eclectic edge of Buddy and Julie Miller, Calico Moon covers a wide array of both original and interpreted material, sure to appeal to those who love Americana, folk, and classic country music.
Acoustic Swing is a unique trio of musicologists that collectively possess over 100 years of musical experience. Noted for their lively, innovative and entertaining performances.
Patrick Fitzsimons, born in Northern Ireland, now calls Asheville home can often be found at Blue Mountain Pizza playing fingerstyle blues, ragtime and other genres on an Epiphone archtop guitar through a tube amplifier. He'll have a foot on a tamourine and his mouth on a harmonica, singing all the while...
I thought I would use this little section at the bottom of the music page to occasionally insert what I consider a great musical moment. They will not stay around forever and might be linked to a special or current event. For starters Patti LaBelle opening her PBS special many years ago. If this doesn't grab you....well, I don't know, if you love it, or just the idea of this little clip section, drop me a note and let me know! Enjoy.....
Or second addition is a number by Mal Cooper of Acoustic Swing. A song written and dedicated to his granddaughter Sophie. See Acoustic Swing on our stage almost every Friday night.
PS. Needless to say, broadband internet connection is not only best but in this case I think necessary.
