Our Sunday, Feb. 25, Years of Farming will feature Sister Sadie, an all-star all female band at 2 p.m., at Double S Entertainment, 150 Foster Street, Flemingsburg. Timber and Nails will be the opening band.
Cost of tickets will be $15, available in advance or at the door. Children 12 and under accompanied by an adult are admitted free. Attendees will have the chance to win door prizes provided by our sponsors along with two tickets to the March 4 Years of Farming show featuring Blue Highway with Laurel River Line opening.
To quote Alison Krauss ”Sister Sadie is an aspiring musical collaboration bringing together some of the best women bluegrass music ever claimed.” Sister Sadie was formed in 2013 after this group of women played one show together for fun at The Station Inn in Nashville and decided it was so much fun they wanted to do it again. Each member still plays with and is committed to their own band -Dale Ann Bradley 5-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Gena Britt- banjo player for Grasstowne and free-lance artist, Deanie Richardson, 2010 nominee for CMA Fiddle Player of the Year, Beth Lawrence on bass and Tina Adair on mandolin have both played with various groups and are free-lance artists. Based out of Nashville and recording on Pinecastle Records this is a bluegrass band you will not want to miss.
Years of Farming is excited about the return of highly requested Timber and Nails as the opening band. Timber and Nails is a Bluegrass Gospel band from Sandy Hook, with the mission to minister the gospel of Jesus Christ through song and testimony. Each member brings a unique set of skills and experiences to the group, but their music is about more than strong vocal arrangements and good picking. This band has been assembled in one accord to preach good tidings unto the meek, bind up the broken hearted, and to proclaim liberty to the captives by lifting up the name of Jesus Christ. Once again I will relay Kyle Burnett wrote one of IIIrd Tyme Outs' recent No. 1 hits “Brown County Red” and Johnny Lewis filled in for JD Crowe when JD broke his wrist. These are two more bands you won’t want to miss.
From day one our goal at Years of Farming is to not only promote bluegrass music in our area, but also to promote our local businesses. We are pleased to be sponsored by 46 local businesses that employ more than 500 people in our community including three other great festivals in our area. Most of our sponsors have sponsored all the shows we have scheduled since 2011 Please take the time to thank our many Fleming County businesses for helping us bring great bluegrass music to Flemingsburg.
We hope you will join us at Years of Farming for an afternoon of awesome bluegrass music. It is a great opportunity to see this caliber of artists in our area in an indoor facility. If you are not familiar with any of our bands, whether a feature band or an opening band, check their websites and/or YouTube for some of their music and history and you will want to attend!
