VW BoysSaturday, February 11th, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., the Carter Family fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert of bluegrass music by the Tim White and the VW Boys. Performing with Tim will be some of the finest bluegrass musicians in the region. Admission to the concert is $7 for adults, $1 for children 6 to 11, under age 6 free.

A longtime supporter of the musical traditions of Appalachia, Tim White settled in east Tennessee in 1974, where he pursued his dream of being an artist, sign painter, and banjo picker. Tim's music has gained a strong following throughout the Appalachian region, and he's fronted several bands over the past two decades - including Troublesome Hollow, the Beagles, and the VW Boys. While he is well-respected for his musical skills, Tim is arguably best known as host of the PBS television concert series, Song of the Mountains. This popular program features bluegrass, old time, Celtic, gospel, and Americana music.

Tim's interest of recognizing, preserving, and perpetuating the historic music of the area led him to organize the Appalachian Cultural Music Association. Tim currently serves as ACMA president. The ACMA helps to support the Mountain Music Museum, which Tim helped found, in 1999. The museum is dedicated to preserving the musical heritage of the southern Appalachians. In addition, Tim produces one of the most popular bluegrass radio programs in the region, The Bluegrass Show, on WAXM (FM 93.5), which airs every Saturday from 9 am to 12 pm as well as a nationally syndicated radio show.

Come join us at the Carter Family Fold for some of the best bluegrass music the region has to offer. Tim & the VW Boys will be doing bluegrass, gospel, and lots of dance tunes - a little something foreveryone. Load up your family and friends and get ready for an evening of unforgettable music and fun!
