Blue Highway coming here

Blue Highway, a super group in contemporary bluegrass music, will be the special guests as the fall season of WMMT’s “Bluegrass Express Live” takes to the airwaves for the 22nd year on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Appalshop Theater in downtown Whitesburg.

Blue Highway, consistent IBMA Award winners both individually and as a group, features incredible harmonies, virtuoso picking and brilliant songwriting – all with a reverent respect for traditional bluegrass, gospel and old-time mountain music.

Blue Highway consists of Tim Stafford on guitar; Rob Ickes, the dobro wizard; Wayne Taylor on bass; Shawn Lane on mandolin, fiddle and guitar; and Jason Burleson on banjo. All share in the vocals and that is one of the reasons their a cappella quartet singing is not to be missed.

WMMT, community public radio, is a part of Appalshop in Whitesburg. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students. For information or reservations, call the Appalshop/WMMT at 606- 633-0108 or visit www.appalshop.org/wmmt.
