Tuesday, JANUARY 24TH, 2023 - 7:00 PM - Burritt on the Mountain

Featured Performance: Shane Adkins


Shane was recently inducted into the 2022 National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame.  He was inspired by Mose Rager, a thumbpicking pioneer who also influenced Merle Travis and Chet Atkins. He promotes thumb and fingerstyle guitar because he believes it is an American musical art form that should be preserved and shared. Shane writes historical songs that tell intriguing stories, funny songs full of laughs, and touching songs that tug at the heart strings.

In January 2002, he performed "Beans and Taters" on the Grand Ole Opry with Mike Snider. In 2003, Shane won the International "Home of the Legends" Thumbpicking Contest in Muhlenberg County, KY and in September 2005, he won the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in Winfield, KS. Shane has completed five albums. Visit Shane's website at https://shaneadkins.com/

The Grasstronaughts is a progressive bluegrass band formed of local Huntsvillians. The Grasstronaughts play traditional bluegrass tunes but they also play an extensive list of more modern songs not thought of as bluegrass. The group takes a wide range of Americana, Rock and Folk Rock and converts it with conventional bluegrass instruments for a very different bluegrass sound. Some examples of artists covered are The Beatles, Coldplay, The Civil Wars, Jason Isbell, Steely Dan, Crosby, Stills and Nash and the Punch Brothers. James Parker on guitar is the lead singer, Huntsville bass icon Nick Walker on bass, Ben Davis of Tangled Strings Studios on Mandolin and vocals, Russ Holder on Dobro and Vocals and Phil Riddick on Banjo.
