The Abingdon Music Experience presents Music on the Lawn. Join us on Sunday afternoons in April and May at The Martha. These concerts are free and open to the public.

Rootstone is a group of versatile young musicians who conjure the ancient strains of American music with a fearless old school sensibility.

This is not Roots Music with a modern twist, or a dash of punk added; It’s a full tilt primitive revival that conjures the sounds of Memphis’ great jug bands and songsters, Mississippi’s Blues and Fiddle masters, and the Blues greats and superb string bands of the Carolina Piedmont.

Around one mic, we sing the songs with their regional accents, and use a rotating arsenal of guitars, banjos, fiddle, upright bass, washboard, jug, harmonica and more to make a glorious ruckus, in full harmony with the ghosts of 400 years of American Roots Music.

Location: Lawn of The Martha Washington Inn & Spa –(Rain or Shine, in case of Rain concerts held indoors at Backstage at The Martha)

Time: 1:00-3:00 pm

Tickets: This event is free to the public.

Call 276-676-2282 for more information.
