Adam Steffey & the Boxcars at Historic Carter Fold Saturday

The BoxcarsHiltons, VA -- Saturday, September 10th, 2016, at 7:30 p.m. the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert of bluegrass music by Adam Steffey & the Boxcars. An east Tennessee native, Adam found a place in the Tennessee-Virginia border area’s thriving bluegrass scene in short order, serving early stints with the Lonesome River Band (Dan Tyminski was his replacement there) and then helping to found the near legendary group, Dusty Miller, along with Barry Bales and guitarist Tim Stafford. The three jumped to the big time together when Alison Krauss recruited them into Union Station; and for nearly seven years, Steffey lived the life of a high profile musician as the band earned Grammy awards and IBMA trophies, toured extensively, made national TV appearances, and recorded albums that reached far beyond the core bluegrass audience. Yet by 1998, the restless side of Steffey’s spirit made itself felt when he left the group and, after helping to lay plans for what later became Mountain Heart, joined the bluegrass gospel group The Isaccs – a setting in which he played a different role.

The Boy from Valdese - A Tribute to George Shuffler

The Boy from Valdese - A Tribute to George ShufflerLong before the Old Rock School became a popular stop for Bluegrass touring artists, hardcore fans of the genre knew the small town of Valdese, NC as the home of the legendary George Shuffler. Born on April 11, 1925, Shuffler is one of the most beloved and influential sidemen of Bluegrass’ first generation. His contributions to the bluegrass music include his “walking” style of playing the bass, and even more significant, his cross-picking style of guitar playing.
