Dear music friends…

I am excited to announce that we will be hosting a house concert at 7:00pm, on Thursday, March 21, 2013, featuring Eddie and Martha Adcock. As many of you know, Eddie Adcock was the banjo player with the famed group The Country Gentlemen whose configuration from 1960-1964 featured Charlie Waller (guitar), Eddie Adcock (banjo), John Duffy (mandolin), and Tom Gray (bass). In my estimation, this was one of the finest bluegrass bands ever, and I attribute much of that to Eddie Adcock who I believe is one of the finest banjo players ever.
You may enjoy watching this sample of The Country Gentlemen performing:…..PDV4G7uOp0

Trust me - it will be an amazing night!
The concert is $20.00 and 100% goes to the Adcocks.
Please mark the date: March 21, 2013, and please rsvp if you plan to attend because seating is limited.
Eddie has agreed to give a one-hour banjo workshop if I can assemble enough banjo pickers interested in learning from this master. It will be held at our home at 4:00pm on the day of the concert (Thursday, March 21, 2013) and the cost is $30.00 per person. The workshop will be followed by a light dinner (for workshop attendees) and if you are staying for the concert, you'll be able to hang here until concert time (7:00pm). If you have not already rsvp'd to my previous alert to this workshop, please rsvp now for the workshop and concert. I need to have an early head count so Eddie can plan his schedule.
Hope to see you then…
