Burritt on the Mountain in collaboration with Huntsville Traditional Music Association are happy to announce the return of the Coffeehouse Series bringing monthly Coffeehouse Concerts back to the Old Country, freeing us from weather concerns and allowing a longer season.
The Grasstronaughts will bring their talent to the February coffeehouse stage on Tuesday, February 28th.
The Grasstronaughts is a progressive bluegrass band formed of local Huntsvillians. The Grasstronaughts play traditional bluegrass tunes but they also play an extensive list of more modern songs not thought of as bluegrass. The group takes a wide range of Americana, Rock and Folk Rock and converts it with conventional bluegrass instruments for a very different bluegrass sound. Some examples of artists covered are The Beatles, Coldplay, The Civil Wars, Jason Isbell, Steely Dan, Crosby, Stills and Nash and the Punch Brothers. James Parker on guitar is the lead singer, Huntsville bass icon Nick Walker on bass, Ben Davis of Tangled Strings Studios on Mandolin and vocals, Russ Holder on Dobro and Vocals and Phil Riddick on Banjo.
Karen Newsum is a singer/songwriter who enjoys writing songs from her life experiences as well as whimsical songs for children. Young or old, her audiences delight in her original lyrics and music.
