January Club Night: TUESDAY, 30 January 2024.
Club night this month is moved to a TUESDAY to make room for the Auckland Folk Festival. We have a very special second half guest: The Alum Ridge Boys & Ashlee. They will be fresh off their Auckland Folk Festival appearance, so should be super hot for us! Tickets are $20/each. Doors open at 6:45pm, first half starts at 7:00pm. Book now at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mining the fertile common ground between bluegrass, early country music, and traditional mountain music, The Alum Ridge Boys & Ashlee are Virginia’s torchbearers of the old time sound. Their powerful harmony singing and energetic instrumentals have captivated audiences around the country and helped the band to win many awards including blue ribbons in the old time band contest at the 85th Annual Old Fiddlers’ Convention in Galax, Virginia and the bluegrass band contest at the 51st Mount Airy Fiddlers’ Convention in North Carolina. Band members have won a slew of individual awards as well, including first prize in the coveted MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting Contest. Deep knowledge and appreciation for traditional music enables the band to craft tasteful original songs and instrumentals that blend seamlessly alongside the classics. The Alum Ridge Boys & Ashlee cut no corners when it comes to real, hard hitting, old time country music – an approach that is quickly gaining them loyal followers far beyond the reaches of their Virginia mountain home.
