CROOKED MILE (Traditional Bluegrass!) plus GA Pick & Bow!
Crooked Mile is a traditional bluegrass band from north Georgia. Its four members (including Dahlonega’s Joel Cordle) have been performing for over 20 years. The band’s approach to music performance is a combination of respect for the tradition and a willingness to have a great time when sharing it with its audience!
?Bluegrass is a vocal music, and they emphasize this with solo singing, duets, and trios. Their sets consist of songs along the continuum from hard-driving fast songs to slow ballads, and like the best bluegrass, Crooked Mile offers a sampling of old-time fiddle and banjo styles and instrumentals as well.

The Georgia Pick & Bow Traditional Music School’s band will open this show. Pick & Bow’s mission is to preserve and promote traditional Appalachian music through affordable music lessons for 4th-12thgraders on fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass. More than 100 children are enrolled, and scholarships are essential. The non-profit school’s board members will be at the show to sell raffle tickets for a beautiful handcrafted guitar in support of the school’s scholarship fund.www.georgiapickandbow.org
