Bluegrass fans take special note! We are thrilled to present an evening of the very best in hard-driving, traditional bluegrass music when Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers join us for a special Thursday night house party on March 31.  Joe and the band will be appearing on Katy Daley's show on the next morning and we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to have them swing through Crownsville on their way into town to play for us.

Joe Mullins is one of the finest traditional tenor singers in bluegrass music today, and he's the ultimate "insider's favorite" banjo player. From his time playing with his father's band, the great Traditional Grass, to his work as the original banjo player with the bluegrass supergroup, Longview, Joe is one of those special talents who makes all of the other bluegrass musicians stop what they're doing and come to the stage to listen.  It's the mark of a true master.

Joe has surrounded himself with a stellar cast of supporting musicians in the Radio Ramblers. I saw them showcase at the IBMA World of Bluegrass in Nashville last September and was knocked out by their great sound and professional show. And now you have an opportunity to see them in a close and intimate environment.

Check out the video below, then come out and join us for this exciting night of hard-core bluegrass music and see what the excitement is all about!
